Subject: News of Forthcoming Productions?
Does anybody know of any useful source which might list forthcoming
productions of Shakespeare and other Renaissance plays in the United
Kingdom? It is easy enough to find out what is appearing in the biggest
British theatres (especially the RSC, the National, and the Globe) but
smaller London and Provincial productions don't seem to be very widely
advertised in advance.
The "Theatre" Magazine used to have a good list of future touring and
provincial productions, but that magazine collapsed some years ago. I
have found the "Theatre Record's" list of future productions useful in
the past, and am aware of the Birmingham University list of future
(http://www.is.bham.ac.uk/shakespeare/current.htm) which is useful, but
certainly not comprehensive. Does anybody know of any other possible
sources for this information? I am particularly interested in London
and the South-East region of England, as I live in Kent.
Many thanks for any help that can be offered.
