THE Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will perform its interpretation of a new poetic liturgy at Coventry Cathedral on Saturday, November 17.

The one-off performance of Redcrosse, which was conceived by Ewan Fernie, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at the University of Birmingham, forms part of the cathedral's Golden Jubilee celebrations.

It offers its new vision of England and St. George through brand new poetry by the former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, the winner of this year’s Costa Prize Jo Shapcott, Michael Symmons Roberts and Andrew Shanks.

The production - premiered at the Windsor Spring Festival - also includes original music by Grammy-award winning Tim Garland for trio Acoustic Triangle and the Choir of Royal Holloway, University of London.

Tickets cost £8, £6.50 concessions, can be booked online at www.coventrycathedral.org.uk or at the visitor centre.
