Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

Being back on stage with Absolute Solo II has been an incredible experience and it is so wonderful to connect with real live audiences once again. I've been overwhelmed and humbled by the incredible response from critics and audiences and am so looking forward to the final show of this short tour in Edinburgh next month.

It is still a tough time for theatres and some audiences are understandably a little wary of coming out again as things reopen. However, those that have attended, have told us that they feel really safe with all the precautions the theatres have put in place and are glad to experience live art again. Please do support your local venues as soon as you can as they need audiences to return to ensure their survival.

We're continuing work on Romeo + Juliet and had a great panel discussion with the artistic advisors that you can now watch on demand. And we're very excited to give you the first peek of the new show trailer.

    Could you donate £15 a month?

    These are challenging times for the survival of art and artists. We are fortunate to be supported in part by Arts Council England however we also rely on one-off and regular donations to continue creating new work and touring.

    Donating £15 per month is a great way to show your support for the arts and means a huge amount to a company like RKDC.

    Thank you
    Thanks to our Patrons
