Not absolutely certain - but he was in Tantalus in 2001. Many well have appeared subsequently.
The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that the road would twist

I have cut and pasted this from a longer entry about Greg Hicks from 'A Dictionary of the RSC' by Simon Trowbridge (see this is the evil thing about the internet - I mess around doing stuff like this when I should be doing my ironing!):

'Back at the RSC since the turn of the century, he has played, with style and verve, Harry in The Family Reunion (Adrian Noble, Swan, 1999, Pit, 2000, New York, 2000); Agamemnon in John Barton's Tantalus (Peter Hall/Edward Hall, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, 2000, Barbican, 2001); Brutus in Julius Caesar (Edward Hall, RST, 2001, Barbican, 2002); Dr Caius in The Merry Wives of Windsor (Rachel Kavanaugh) paired with the title role in Coriolanus (David Farr, Swan and Small-scale Tour, 2002-03, Old Vic, 2003); and Michael Boyd's first season—the title role in Macbeth (Dominic Cooke), followed by Ghost/Player King/Gravedigger in Hamlet (Michael Boyd, RST, 2004, Albery, 2004-05).'

Foxa is spot on. He was also in Joanna Laurens's Poor Beck that season (2004).

IMHO his Macbeth was OK, but his ghost in Hamlet was sensational - truly creepy! If you dig around the RSC's Learning bit on their web site there are some videos and discussion of bits of Macbeth - I think it's called something like Exploring the Tragedies or something. try this: http://www.rsc.org.uk/exploringshakespeare/

O that ghost, still makes me shiver when it is mentioned. How did that come up with that? He's a super actor so hope to see more of him .

In a recent interview he said he wanted to do more film/TV work and might as a result be not doing much more stage work.
