Digital Theatre Plus - Added Content from the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC)

As you know, Digital Theatre Plus  (DT+) is the British-based collection of high-definition streaming videos which capture recent live full-length professional theatre productions from leading theatre companies in Great Britain.  DT+ now also presents various production forms: film, music, opera, dance in addition to filmed theatre productions.

Exciting news! The Royal Shakespeare Company has chosen  DT+ as the digital distributor of it's full canon. As of December 11, 2017, 13 productions have been made available in DT+, with the remaining productions added as they are captured.

To access the RSC's Shakespeare productions currently in DT+,   type   shakespeare rsc    into the search box
then scroll down the screen to find the filmed productions (caveat: other RSC digital material is included in the 37 results).

I have a quick reminder that it is also the place where you can access text- and video-based study guides and teaching aids as well as videos of filmed interviews with actors, etc., associated with all the productions in the collection, including the RSC's canon.
