Economics RSC Trip 2016Wednesday 9 Dec 2015
We have a limited number of complimentary tickets to see Don Quixote on two dates at the Swan Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The dates are:
- Thursday 10th March 2016
- Thursday 28th April 2016
The plays starts at 7.30pm and a free coach service will transfer you to and from the RSC. Coach timings and collection points will be confirmed nearer the time. On the return journey the coach will drop off on campus and in Leamington Spa.
As a Department, we are continuing to develop the link between the Social Sciences and the Arts, and it is also a great opportunity to visit Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and to experience a play at the world renowned RSC.
The trip is open to all Economics undergraduate and postgraduate students and tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. This will be a highly popular event; if you register for a ticket but do not attend the trip you will be asked to pay for the cost of the ticket.
After a lifetime of reading books on chivalry, Don Quixote decides to embark on a quest of his own. Taking up a lance and sword, he sets out to become a wandering knight, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked.
Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, he travels across Spain accompanied by his faithful and equally ill-suited squire. With each calamitous adventure they experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote's books seems further away than ever.
