RSC Dell rounds off our tour as our penultimate show before the big finale event….

And so, our tour of single plays and extracts comes to a close.

We’ve been all over the place: after Henry V at Poltimore House (Exeter), the Open Stages showcase at Hall for Cornwall, Truro, 3 shows at the University of Exeter Piazza, and a performance/workshop day at St James school, Exeter, we’ve made the final stop on the preliminary tour of The Wars of the Roses extracts, in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

The shows today (at the RSC’s Dell theatre) went swimmingly.. the weather actually stayed dry-ish (apart from an epic opening of the heavens for York’s gruesome death) and we had a good audience of around 200 folk altogether. It was the day of the Olympic Torch passing through, so Stratford was nice and busy – although we had a lot of competition with various music/stalls/performances/games etc going on around the town. The atmosphere was great though, and the Dell – situated in the theatre gardens near the RST – was a lovely space to perform in.

So well done performers and crew, and thanks to all who came (especially the hard-core fans/friends/family/other-halves who traveled long distances!) Time for us to take a short break to rest, recuperate and prepare ourselves before we dive in and stage the final five of our 8-play extravaganza. With just 5 working weeks left until the big day, Henry VI (parts 1, 2 and 3), 2 Henry IV and Richard II will be consuming our lives very soon. Watch this space…
