Slow Cotswolds

  • Well Said William!

    In the year in which the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, Well Said!, a free, family-friendly exhibition will celebrate some of the most famous lines in the English language. Renowned author Margaret Atwood, award-winning playwright Tanika Gupta, comedian, writer and actor Russell Kane and RSC Hamlet lead Paapa Essiedu (also opening at the RSC this March) are among twelve eminent writers, actors and poets who have shared their favourite quotes with the RSC. These quotes, from Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, histories and poetry, have been transformed into a range of artworks by some of the UK's most talented and contemporary artists and craftspeople using various disciplines, from textiles to illustration and calligraphy to audio.

    The exhibition will present the work from illustrator Jonny Hannah, sound artist James Bulley, letterpress company Harrington & Squires, lettering sculptor Gary Breeze, graphics studio An Endless Supply and seven other accomplished artists. Among the works displayed will also be a two-minute British Sign Language film by Deafinitely Theatre, inspired by Sonnet 30.

    Well Said! will be open between 19th March and 18th September 2016, from 10am until the theatre closes each evening.
