The University of Birmingham is engaged in an exciting five-year collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) at The Other Place. This pioneering project has seen the reinstatement of the iconic RSC studio theatre, The Other Place. Opened in 2016 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, The Other Place is the RSC’s creative hub for rehearsal, training, learning and research.
