My guess would be that Jonathan Slinger will play Parolles.


My guess too. It looks from the poster as if it will have a World War II setting - this is a new RSC innovation, revealing the staging way in advance via the poster, they did it for the Patrick Stewart Vegas "Merchant" too.

The All's Well poster is rather nice; will have to book for it, methinks.

I'd wait, the director has had mixed success to say the least.

Nancy Meckler? Ever since Onassis, I decided I'd never see anything else done by her, but the artwork is swaying me...

Any guesses as to who is going to play Titus? Very excited for this one, the picture on the website makes it look like they could be going for a circus vibe with it, Pagliaco style, although the clown does look a bit like the clown from Taymors film version who delivers the heads to Titus.

This was a joke! The RST and Swan have two separate acting companies next summer and Mr Slinger's to be in the RST, So he will NOT playTitus Andronicus in the Swan.

Her most notorious RSC effort was her "Romeo and Juliet" where the text was interpreted through the medium of dance, as Vic Reeves used to say. However, her Dickensian "Comedy of Errors" was admired. Wait for reviews.

I swore I would never cross the threshold of a production of hers after R&J. But I think I did.

Just got back from Twelfth Night, a play I dislike in a production I rather enjoyed.  I'll write it up tomorrow, but it certainly whets my appetite for next year's Farr/Slinger Hamlet.   Which is good, given I've booked for it already.
