Associate Producer for the RSC: Henry VI part 1 Open Rehearsal Project 2021
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the RSC opened the virtual doors to their rehearsal rooms so audiences could see the work behind the live performances.
With theatres closed for over a year, the RSC had to look for different ways to bring their work to audiences. In 2021, Directors Gregory Doran and Owen Horsley took the brave step of inviting viewers into the rehearsal room of Henry VI Part 1, giving them access to livestreams of actor warm-ups, scene rehearsals and Green Room conversations, culminating in a live online run through of the full play from the Ashcroft Room in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
Director Owen Horsley tells us what we can look forward to as audiences are invited into the rehearsal room for Henry VI: Part One.
