If an elderly relative in enormous physical pain begged you to help them to die, would you? Would you ever ask the same of someone else? What is a ‘decent death’? Should we all have the right to one? Or, put another way, should euthanasia be legalised in the UK?
Sir Peter Hall, the founding director of both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Rose Theatre, Kingston and the second director of the National Theatre, passed away yesterday (11 September 2017) at the age of 86. Four other NT artistic directors lead the tributes.
Rose Theatre Kingston today announces that Joely Richardson, Robert Sheehan and Kåre Conradi, lead the company for The Wars of the Roses. This autumn the Rose stage will be transformed into a battleground for The Wars of the Roses, a gripping adaptation of four of Shakespeare’s history plays, directed by Trevor Nunn. The productions will play in rep from 16 September until 31 October, with press performances for all three plays on 3 October.
