|RSC COURTYARD THEATRE|
Our involvement with the Royal Shakespeare Company’s new Courtyard Theatre included providing a multitude of alternative auditorium designs, seating and sightline proposals, complete stagelighting and audiovisual systems tenders, and creating bespoke stage engineering systems to a tight timescale and in extremely close collaboration with the RSC’s staff and advisors.
The Courtyard was designed within 6 months and built in 11 months, and was completed on time and on budget.
The Courtyard is now the RSC's sole theatre in Stratford whilst the existing Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre undergo a substantial refurbishment.
