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 playwrights. 

We actively seek out and nurture new and emerging voices. We read and consider over 2,000 unsolicited scripts each year and work with hundreds of writers through our writers’ groups. We also travel across the world, developing exchanges between British and international artists. 

Support the Court

As a charity, we rely on support to enable us to keep writers at the heart of everything we do. Our supporters give us the freedom to take bigger and bolder risks in our work. In turn, this enables our writers to write openly, experimentally and free from censorship.

With your support, writers at the Royal Court challenge the status quo and disrupt the theatre ecology. Please consider supporting the Court today. Find out more.
