Playwriting

The Royal Court has an unwavering commitment to writers.

For over 60 years, we have premiered groundbreaking new plays and helped to launch the careers of our foremost playwrights.

We actively seeks out and nurture new and emerging voices. Our Literary Office reads and considers over 2,000 unsolicited scripts each year, we work with hundreds of writers through our writers groups, and our International Department travels across the world, developing exchanges between British and international artists.
