Watch Royal Shakespeare Company shows for free on the BBC

Watch shows from the Royal Shakespeare Company for free on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer during the Coronavirus lockdown.

The Royal Shakespeare Company is showing six of its past productions for free on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer during the Coronavirus lockdown, as part of the BBC’s Culture in Quarantine programme.

Between now and September, theatre fans can watch Hamlet, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and The Merchant of Venice brought to life on screen by the RSC, with celebrity stars including Christopher Eccleston as Macbeth and Hugh Quarshie as Othello.

The education team at the RSC is also creating a programme of activities related to each show to help children studying the plays as part of their home schooling while schools are closed. There will even be actors available to provide homework help through the Shakespeare Learning Zone.
