RSC at Stratford

The Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford Upon Avon

We booked a VIP behind the scenes tour before the show (Macbeth) which was well worth it. Photography was only permitted in the public areas and the museum but not in the auditorium.

A selection of the costumes on show:

From a Midsummer Night's Dream (1962)

Fabrics are painted or dyed before cutting the pattern. The material may be "aged" and covered in mud or blood. Armour made from plastic and leather, and occassionally metal.

Period ladies underwear and costume.

Samurai costime for Coriolanus (2002). Dress for Helen Mirren as Queen Margaret in 1977 production of Henry V1 part 2

And some of the props:

"Exit, pursued by bear" (a fur rug) from a Winters Tale (1986); a Hobby Horse from a Midsummer Night's Dream (1981); and octopus headdress from the Tempest (2012) - but not used

and a nice stained glass window depicting some of the characters from the plays:
