A Statement from the Royal Court Theatre

Published on Fri 15 Dec 2017

Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre:

“As Artistic Director of the Royal Court I know that we are nothing without the voices and trust of our writers. This is the guiding principle on which the theatre was founded and on which it continues to be run. I have therefore been rocked to the core by accusations of censorship and the banning of a working class female voice. For that reason I have invited the current Out of Joint production of Rita, Sue and Bob Too back to the Royal Court for its run. As a result of this helpful public debate we are now confident that the context with which Andrea Dunbar’s play will be viewed will be an invitation for new conversations.”

Performance dates and times will remain the same and tickets will go on sale from Thursday 21 December at noon.

There will be post show talks after the performances, to be announced.
