“There is no more important theatre in the world than the Royal Court. Its commitment to making theatre that is challenging and daring has defined and constantly reinvented the entire theatre ecology. There is a commitment to supporting writers at the heart of the work that is exceptional”
Simon Stephens, Associate Playwright
The Royal Court is the writers’ theatre. We exist to cultivate writers – undiscovered, emerging and established. We create restless, alert, provocative theatre about now. We open our doors to the unheard voices and free thinkers that, through their writing, change our way of seeing. In today’s world, our mission is more important than ever before, we know how crucial it is for us to be unflinching and keep taking risks to find stories from everywhere and create theatre for everyone.
We need your help to continue supporting and nurturing our writers to create ground-breaking work that challenges us and questions the world around us. Despite our doors having to close again as we go into a third lockdown, we continue to deliver all our behind-the-scenes programmes for writers here in the UK and around the world, our International projects, our school residencies and our work for and with young people.
With your support, the Royal Court can look ahead to the future and ensure we emerge from these difficult times stronger. Find out how you can get involved below.
