A play as little known and with no mega-mega stars (sorry Les) like Venice Preserved, takes a bit of selling. I thought I’d share some of the RSC’s usual and some unusual marketing materials.

We’ve had such a great response so far, a really young crowd coming to the show. It’s wonderful to have such a buzzy and excited audience in the Swan to share our production with.

The RSC have made some fun videos about the show. In some of them I think we may not have been taking it all particularly seriously. I mean it is a Tragedy after all.
