We're delighted to announce that our version of Romeo and Juliet for schools at the University of Manchester has now sold out.
We're offering free creative workshops for people living with dementia, thanks to support from Arts Council England and 1623 friends.
Matthew has been volunteering with 1623 for just over a year. Here, he talks to our artistic director Ben about his achievements throughout 2016 and his plans for the future.
1623 is inviting people living with dementia, their carers, families and friends to a dementia-friendly performance of Lear/Cordelia and to take part in workshops based on the production.
Birmingham REP Foundry graduate Farrah Chaudhry offers an insight into the process of writing Cordelia, half of our double-bill Lear/Cordelia that brings together Shakespeare and new writing.
