After a relatively quiet period, news of some RSC alumni.
First is Siobhan Redmond, most recently seen in “Dunsinane” at the Hampstead Theatre, who is appearing as the “Electress” in the Donmar’s production of the von Kleist masterpiece “The Prince of Homburg”. Adapted by Dennis Kelly so two alumni for the price of one!  The show runs from 22nd July to 4th September. More details at http://www.donmarwarehouse.com/ 
Just cast in “The Master Builder”, a Chichester Festival Theatre production running from 9th September to 9th October, is Maureen Beattie. Check it out on http://www.cft.org.uk/

Maureen Beattie will be appearing in Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” at the Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh from 16th April to 8th May. More details can be found at http://www.lyceum.org.uk/. You will remember that Maureen moved effortlessly from playing the Duchess of York in Richard II, traded down to Mistress Quickly for the Henry IVs and V, was ennobled again as the Duchess of Gloucester in the Henry VIs and ended as another Duchess of York in Richard III.


This news has been in the public domain for a while but, in case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, some information about Jonathan Slinger and Chuk Iwuji.
