- Antony and Cleopatra
- Henry IV Part 1 & Part 2

- Love’s Labour’s Lost

- The Merchant of Venice
- Richard II
- The Tempest
- Titus Andronicus

The RSC’s artistic director Gregory Doran said: “Nothing can replace the experience of seeing a play live on stage. But with our theatres currently closed, and all of us spending much more time at home, we are pleased to be part of this initiative. This will give people from around the world the chance to see 18 of our recent productions for free at this time.
“We have been filming all of our Shakespeare plays since 2013, broadcasting them into cinemas and schools, and with some being accessible through Marquee TV. Shakespeare speaks to us unlike any other writer, and this partnership with Marquee will enable everyone to enjoy his work, bringing us together virtually at a time when many of us will be apart.”
