“The Royal Court has nurtured, provoked and challenged me from the moment writing for theatre seemed a faint possibility for me. Its uncompromising commitment to risk-taking, bravado and joy has indelibly marked me as an artist and human. I’m honoured to call it a second home.”
Jasmine Lee-Jones, Playwright
Since 1956, the Royal Court’s mission to support, nurture and empower writers has never wavered. Through our writers, we are at the forefront of creating restless, alert, provocative theatre that reflects the world in which we live. Our plays ask questions that haven’t yet been asked in ways that haven’t yet been imagined.
In today’s world, our mission is more important than ever; we must be unflinching and keep taking risks to find stories from all over the world, nurture the next generation of theatre-makers and continue to create theatre that is open to everyone.
Our supporters are part of the essential fabric that enables us to keep our finger on the pulse – they give us the freedom to take bigger and bolder risks, challenge the status quo and create world class theatre that affects and disrupts the theatre ecology.
We simply can’t do it without our supporters.
