Join Us

Our Friends and Good Friends are part of the fabric of the Royal Court. They are our regulars and together, we enjoy bold and restless theatre that provokes and challenges us all. Like all friends, they help us too. The income we receive from our memberships directly supports our mission, providing writers with a space and platform to experiment and develop their writing, inspiring the next generation of theatre makers.

Join today and be part of our community. 


Our Friends are the first to hear about Royal Court Theatre productions, they get priority booking including advanced access to £12 Monday tickets for productions in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs and enjoy a 10% discount in our Bar & Kitchen (including Court in the Square) and Samuel French bookshop.

You can join from £45/year or from £40/year if you’re 30 and under, 65 and over, or want to sign-up with auto-renew (this option enables your membership to automatically renew each year).

In addition to the Friend benefits, our Good Friends also receive five complimentary playtexts for Royal Court productions* and an invitation for two to step behind the scenes of the Royal Court Theatre at a special annual event. Our Good Friends’ support goes that little bit further as the £95 membership includes a voluntary donation.

That extra support goes directly towards producing bold new writing for our stages, cultivating and supporting writers in the UK and all over the world, and inspiring the next generation of theatre-makers through our programmes for young people.
