Alice In Wonderland And Through the Looking Glass

Alice In Wonderland And Through the Looking Glass
On a glorious summer's afternoon, young Alice happens upon a smartly dressed rabbit looking at his watch and muttering 'I'm too late!' This being an unexpected occurrence, she follows him down a nearby rabbit hole and falls in Wonderland. Lewis Carroll's timeless children's stories Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found there are magically brought to life in this new adaptation by Adrian Mitchell, specially commissioned for a Christmas production by the RSC. the amazing Lobster Quadrille, the Queen of Hearts' infamous croquet match and the Mad Hatter's Tea Party are just a few of the remarkable events and characters in this enchanting play.

Boris Godunov

Boris Godunov
Widely accepted to have been inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth, Boris Godunov recounts the tragic conflict between Tsar Boris and the pretender Dimitri. Following the death of Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov became regent for the feeble-minded Tsar Fyodor, the heir to whose throne, the boy-prince Dimitri, died mysteriously in 1591. It was widely rumoured that Boris had murdered him, and when a renegade monk later appeared claiming to be Dimitri, he rapidly became a focus for revolt. This adaptation by acclaimed playwright & novelist Adrian Mitchell, was Mitchell's final project before his death in 2008 and forms part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Winter 2012 season.
