London’s coolest theatre

Harpers & Queen

The Royal Court Theatre is the writers’ theatre. It is the leading force in world theatre for energetically cultivating writers ‐ undiscovered, new, and established.

Through the writers the Royal Court is at the forefront of creating restless, alert, provocative theatre about now, inspiring audiences and influencing future writers. Through the writers the Royal Court strive to constantly reinvent the theatre ecology, creating theatre for everyone.

We Invite and enable conversation and debate, allowing writers and their ideas to reach and resonate beyond the stage, and the public to share in the thinking.

Over 200,000 people visit the Royal Court in Sloane Square, London, each year and many thousands more see our work elsewhere through transfers to the West End and New York, national and international tours, residencies across London and site-specific work.

We believe there is no more important theatre in the world than the Royal Court.
