The Royal Mail has launched a new set of stamps to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Launched today, 12 April 2011, the Stamps feature six of the RSC’s most acclaimed productions, alongside a Miniature Sheet featuring four stamps showing the theatres where the RSC has performed in Stratford-upon-Avon through the years.

The set features former Dr Who David Tennant as Hamlet, Antony Sher as Prospero in The Tempest, Chuk Iwuji as Henry VI, Paul Schofield as King Lear, Sara Kestelman as the fairy queen Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Ian McKellen and Francesca Annis as Romeo and Juliet.
