Subject:  RSC details
 
15 January 1991
 
     The press conference at which the Royal Shakespeare
Company announces the new Stratford season to start in
the spring is scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday) as I
understand.  This will be the first season under the new
directorship of Adrian Noble.  But a friend has
telephoned to say that this morning's Guardian newspaper
has published some details:
 
       In the Main House plans seem to be to present
       Romeo, Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night and 1 & 2
       Henry 4.  The schedule for the Swan is expected to
       include three Theban Plays by Sophocles,
       Shadwell's The Virtuoso, Jonson's Alchemist, and
       Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona.  No word
       that I know of yet on the rebuilt Other Place.
 
     If there are corrections to this, I will try to
supply them.  The past season was generally considered a
success but I do not know exactly what is to happen to
the London side of the RSC at the Barbican which, as many
readers will know, has had to go dark this winter because
of government cuts for the first time since the company
moved there.
 
                                   Sincerely,
                                   Stephen Miller
Janet
