THE ROYAL COURT THEATRE: NEW SEASON OF WORK FEBRUARY – AUGUST 2019
“Theatre is a civic space – a space to hold, challenge and illuminate the questions of our times whether personal, national or global. This season does that. We are honoured at the Royal Court that these writers, theatre-makers and musicians are trusting their unflinching, yet often vulnerable stories and journeys with us to place before you – so we may be enlightened, shocked, entertained, moved and changed. Many of these artists have never worked with us before, many are at the start of their journey and others more experienced are returning to the very personal to make sense of where we are right now. We are honoured to give them our building.” Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director
Alongside the plays, we’re also announcing Brexit Big Band & Leavers’ Assembly with Matthew Herbert’s unique and ambitious Big Band to mark the weekend the UK leaves the EU; a collaboration with Kudos to create three new Writing Fellowships; Dismantle This Room co-created by Royal Court Trainee Director Milli Bhatia, Ingrid Marvin and Nina Segal; and a new season of our Playwright’s Podcast, hosted by Simon Stephens.
