Anatomy Of A Suicide

Until July 8, 2017

Alice Birch returns to the Royal Court Theatre in 2017 with a brand-new work, directed by Katie Mitchell. Debuting with her first full-length play Many Moons in 2011 at the Edinburgh Fringe, this new and provocative work examines the dreadful legacy of suicide through three generations of women in the same family. Known for her unashamedly feminist writing, Birch continues her partnership with Mitchell following their previous collaborations 2071, Ten Billion, Cleansed) and Ophelias Zimmer, staged in early 2016.


July 21-September 9, 2017

First premiering in 2009 during Bench Theatre's 40th anniversary season, Jim Cartwright's seminal play about hope overcoming struggle comes to the Royal Court Theatre in 2017. The production will be helmed by John Tiffany whose most recent work includes Harry Potter & The Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre and previous Royal Court works such as The Twits, Hope, and Let the Right One In. Set during the troubled Eighties, we follow the residents of a Lancashire street as they prepare for a huge party. However, the political undercurrents and tension of a recession affect each person in different ways.
