Subject:        Royal Shakespeare Company in London

Just a reminder that the Royal Shakespeare Company's Winter Season
opened at the Barbican on 19 October.  Booking for the period 20
November 2000 to 26 May 2001 opened on 11 October, with certain
exceptions.  In the summer, the cycle of history plays started at
Stratford with the acclaimed production of Richard II.  Acclaimed, but
difficult to see as the entire run at The Other Place sold out
immediately!  Richard II opens at the Pit on 19 December, Henry IV Pt I
in the Barbican Theatre on 8 Feb, Henry IV Pt 2 on 15 Feb, Henry V on 15
Mar.  The second Tetralogy opens at the Young Vic on 27 Mar 2001.  Now,
certain performances are reserved until I January 2001 for those booking
variously 2, 3, 4 or 8 shows.  For the week Monday 9 April to Saturday
14 April, and again from Monday 16 April to Saturday 21 April, tickets
can be booked now to see all eight plays in three theatres in five or
six days!  The British public is (perhaps rightly) suspicious of such
stunts, so plenty of tickets are still available, but I have to confess
that I delayed telling you about this until my tickets were safely

Further details (including a tantalising reference to a solitary
performance of Edward III on 9 April) on the RSC website:
