Renowned worldwide, the Royal Shakespeare Company performs the famous works of William Shakespeare, his contemporaries and new writing, in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon.
From the 1000 seat Royal Shakespeare Theatre and 450 seat Swan Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company brings audiences closer to the plays, words and creations of the World’s greatest playwright and the wonderful experience that is live theatre.
