International Writers Groups

Long term writers groups and exchanges form a key part of our International work. These workshop programmes support emerging playwrights to develop innovative, original and exciting new plays within their own theatre tradition. The group will meet for a number of residential workshops in the writers’ home country and allow each artist to write and re-draft a new piece of work across the span of the programme. These groups are facilitated by playwrights we are currently working with (both those based in the UK and internationally). Workshops are bespoke to the country or theatre culture in which we are working. Plays produced during these projects are frequently produced and published internationally and occasionally developed towards production at the Royal Court.

These case studies provide information about some of these international projects.
