In addition, we are responsible for BT National Connections, a partnership scheme with 10 regional theatres, in which 144 youth groups from all over the UK participate, culminating in 12 performances in the Olivier and Cottesloe in July.
I don't know if this activity is sufficiently "rock'n'roll" for your correspondent, but if the RSC has equally ambitious plans, Britain is being well served by its two national theatre companies.
