A quick update on the whereabouts and doings of some RSC alumni:

1. Nick Asbury is part of the new Propeller company that will be staging Henry V and The Winter’s Tale starting on 9th November at Guildford and climaxing next July at Hampstead Theatre in London. Find all the details you’ll ever need at http://www.propeller.org.uk/;
2. John Heffernan, such a fine Richard II at the Tobacco Factory recently, is in the new show at Hampstead Theatre running from this Thursday (20th) until 26th November. Called “The Last of the Duchess” it’s about the final days of the Duchess of Windsor, is written by Nicholas Wright and, apart from John, stars Sheila Hancock, Angela Thorne and Anna Chancellor. Check it out on http://www.hampsteadtheatre.com/;
3. I’m sure you’ve all seen the news (but no harm in repeating) that the RSC  is collaborating with the Soho Theatre, London, now run by Steve Marmion who cut some of his directorial teeth assisting Rupert Goold on Antony & Cleopatra a few years ago, to produce a play about football featuring Katy Stephens;
4. Edmund Kingsley has another week in “The River Line” at the Jermyn Theatre www.jermynstreettheatre.co.uk/ 
5. Tamsin Greig can be seen in the current show in the Royal Court’s Theatre Downstairs until 19th November http://www.royalcourttheatre.com/
6Penny Downie AND Michael Pennington will be appearing at the Print Room in “Judgement Day”, a new version of Ibsen’s “When We Dead Awaken”. The Print Room is a new(ish) space in the Notting Hill/ Westbourne Green area of London at 34 Hereford Road W2 5AJ. Have a look at http://www.the-print-room.org/ for more details 

And I notice that it’s farewell to Michael Boyd and Vikki Heywood who announced on Friday that they will both stand down next year after 10 years running the RSC together. What will we do now?
