Jerwood Foundation has awarded a £150,000 grant to The Royal Court Theatre which will support Artistic Director, David Byrne, with his inaugural season of work across their two stages, as well as the Court’s overall ambition to cultivate, advocate for, and support theatre writers.

David Byrne, Artistic Director of the Royal Court, said, “Across the decades, Jerwood and the Royal Court have enjoyed a deep relationship, supporting and championing many of the world’s most influential playwrights. This major grant secures our future and reaffirms our historic partnership for a new era, allowing us to renew and revitalise our mission as a leading force in world theatre, cultivating and supporting writers – undiscovered, emerging and established.”
