Royal Shakespeare Homeless In Capital

The Royal Shakespeare Company is running out of time. If the company can’t find a theatre by the end of the week, it will be the first time in 40 years the RSC hasn’t performed a season in London. “If, as seems likely, that deadline passes without a result, it will be the first time in the RSC’s history that its Stratford season has failed to transfer to the capital. As so often happens with the Bard, tragedy has followed farce: the RSC’s disastrous decision to quit its long-standing London home at the Barbican is blamed for its embarrassing predicament.”
