RSC Creative Team Talk: The Magician's Elephant

Join our actors and members of the creative team as they unwrap our plays and demonstrate some of the skills that go into making them. Our Unwrapped demonstrations offer a peek into the rehearsal room, with the Assistant Director and members of the cast looking at moments from the play. They give an insight into how a scene is taken off the page and onto the stage and show the type of exercises and discussion that took place during rehearsals.
