RSC announces online conversation series

Judi Dench, David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and more will take part in a new series of online conversations hosted by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Talking Shakespeare, which launches next Monday, will feature the likes of Judi Dench, Ray Fearon, Harriet Walter, Patrick Stewart, Alexandra Gilbreath, David Tennant, Adjoa Andoh, Simon Russell Beale and Paterson Joseph with further guests to be announced in the coming weeks.

The events are free, but with a suggested donation of £10.

Executive director Catherine Mallyon, said: “Our Members and supporters are providing the Company with vital income during the Covid-19 crisis. Since the closure of our theatres in March we have been finding new and creative ways of engaging with our supporters online.

“Whilst it is sadly too early to say when we will be able to re-open and what the future might look like, we hope that ‘Talking Shakespeare’ and other similar events will continue to entertain and engage our membership through this challenging time, and importantly thank them for their ongoing and vital support as we look forward to the time when we can safely re-open.”

The first conversation with Dench will take place on 13 July at 5pm. Find out more here.
