GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Actors from the London Stage, a Shakespeare theater company, will visit SF State March 5-9 as part of their American tour.

The touring group was developed in 1975 by professor Homer Swander of UC Santa Barbara and co-founded by British actor Sir Patrick Stewart, according to the group’s press release. The actors who take part in the London Stage have connections to many of the major theaters in London, including the National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare’s Globe, Old Vic and BBC.

“They will be visiting a number of classrooms for educational programs while they are here, as well as giving three performances of King Lear,” SF State Theatre Arts Professor Kurt Daw said.
