Our Reopening Programme

We’re delighted to share our reopening programme and announce five upcoming productions which will be staged in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs from June – December 2021.

“We’re proud to be re-opening our building with four pieces of work by eight writers which were all postponed by the sudden onset of the global pandemic; and also thrilled to be announcing a new short play written at the height of this time, by Caryl Churchill.

It is testament to the vision and questing of the playwrights and artists at the Royal Court, that the work programmed two years ago is still way ahead of its time. In fact, seeing through the new optics of our post-pandemic and ruptured world these pieces now seem more acute, more urgent and more universal than ever. The Royal Court was created in 1956 to be ahead of public taste and consciousness and if anything, this work proves that that mission is as alive now as it ever was.

We are so humbled by the support of our audience, artists, donors, board and staff since having to close and cannot wait to welcome them all back with this work, which we have fiercely protected from the pandemic.” – Vicky Featherstone
