Posts Tagged ‘New Work’

In the early days of the RSC, a 16 year old like myself had to choose whether to spend saved  money for theatre outings on either tickets for Stratford or the company’s New Work in London. Invariably, Shakespeare won but I was able to keep in touch with New Work such as AFORE NIGHT COME, EVERYTHING IN THE GARDEN, NIL CARBORUNDUM, EH? and THE REPRESENTATIVE by reading  and enjoying the published play texts which were in print pretty quickly.

The RSC has always made the texts of New Work available and at reasonable prices. For this we should be most grateful. However, some quite amazing bargains are currently available at the excellent RSC shop at The Courtyard. Those of us who have not been able to catch the recent new work in London and Newcastle may keep in touch with it by purchasing  texts of THE CORDELIA DREAM, THE GODS WEEP, DUNSINANE and A TENDER THING at the amazing and fantastic bargain price of 50 pence a copy! 

In addition, there are copies at the same price of the texts for BREAKFAST WITH MUGABE and ARABIAN NIGHTS, thus enabling all who saw these excellent productions in Stratford to relive them in a special way. 

I’ll end this blog now so you don’t have to read any more but may hasten to The Courtyard whilst copies of the above are still available!
