Noble: My “Vile” Last Year At The RSC

Adrian Noble speaks about his bumpy last year and resignation as head of the Royal Shakespeare Company: “Of course, there were things that went dreadfully wrong at the RSC, and I deeply regret them. The principal mistake was announcing everything at the same time. I did not leave the RSC in a mess. For one thing, the deficit was £1 million less than what I inherited in 1991, and all the big successes that have come to fruition in the last couple of years – the Jacobean season, Judi in All’s Well – are the result of the changes I was setting up.”
