New collaboration for RC!

We're delighted to announce that incredibly talented writer and director Christopher Andrews is joining the company as Associate Artist.

We're very excited about the possibilities of this collaboration, particularly as Chris will be approaching his work with us from a background in tv and film, bringing a whole new skills set and ideas to the company.

Chris was the man behind the thought-provoking trailer for our production of Phaedra's Love. Here it is again if you missed it...
