And Oliver Ryan is completing the set by playing Rosencrantz, to follow his Guildenstern in Hamlet for Bill Alexander at Birmingham Rep and his Rosencrantz in R & G are Dead for Terry Hands and Clwyd Theatr Cymru in Mold, Cardif and Bath. If I were in his position, I'd find it hard to resist playing a conglomeration of all three and generally misbehaving to some degree,

Will the RSC be bringing any productions to London as they did last year with Julius Caesar and Much Ado? Or was that London season just a one-off?

They've previously announced they will be doing 5 Roundhouse seasons (first was last year) - http://www.whatsonst...se Seasons.html

Not sure about any West End transfers but if the Tennant Richard II rumour is true that would certainly transfer

Oliver Ford Davies is also in the cast, presumably as Gloucester.

Or John of Gaunt?

And the RSC is returning, at least temporarily, to the Barbican - wonders will never cease.

Just listening to the interview videos

Gregory Doran said that there is a five year plan. The first part taking place in 2014-2016, or Shakespeare's 450th Birthday to 400th Anniversary of his death, and they are going to chart that arc. They are not (necessarily?) going to repeat Shakespeare's plays and the Swan is going to be showing basically anything anything non-Shakespeare.
