The Royal Shakespeare’s Unconventional Shaplin

Adriano Shaplin is an unconventional choice as writer-in-residence for the Royal Shakespeare Company. “These essentially conservative institutions, the National and the RSC, are now under new leadership and are looking around for the people who are making real ensemble theatre. It’s great that they’re turning to companies like the Riot Group and Shunt. The RSC has used the phrase ‘blood transfusion’. It’s so exciting.”
