The Other Place: Create

The Other Place is a precious space for the creation, development and showcasing of experimental modern theatre in the spirit of ‘radical mischief,’ a spirit of play, enthusiasm, fearlessness, and intelligence.

University of Birmingham courses offer a truly unique learning experience, blending academia and creativity in an exciting new way to foster innovative methods of creating theatre and engaging in research and learning. Through our collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) students are able to study and create theatre in Shakespeare's own daring spirit, in the heart of Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon.

"Through the RSC collaboration, students get to see the magic happen and help create it at The Other Place."
