Student protests successfully enable them to avoid tedious performances of Shakespeare

The RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) has come under considerable pressure from student activist groups to cut its sponsorship ties to several companies. Otherwise students were threatening to boycott the theatre.

These include companies who are deemed to pollute the atmosphere, destroy the environment, and make popcorn as well as those propping up right-wing juntas and condoning genocide.

Upon investigation, the RSC found every sponsor had some undesirable quality so the Company took the step of ending all sponsorship.

An RSC spokesperson said: “Students have continually complained about one sponsor or another. They don’t even like ice cream makers because it’s not vegan so to prevent any further protests we have stopped all sponsorship.

“So while that may be a positive result for the protesters, it does mean our ticket prices will have to rise to cover the considerable shortfall.”

One student said: “This prove that ordinary people can make a difference.

“Of course, as students, we will never be able to go and see a performance but it’s a small price to pay for saving the planet.”

The RSC spokesperson said: “Shakespeare made his name putting on plays for the masses. Now only the well-off will be able to attend.

“He liked irony did Will.”
