Nuclear War

April 19-May 6, 2017

Simon Stephens returns in his associate playwright capacity at the Royal Court in 2017, with his brand-new play following his previous works Birdland, Wastwater, Bluebird, Herons, Country Music and Motortown. Helmed by movement director Imogen Knight in her sole directorial debut for the Court, this new work is a series of contemplations on mortality and time amidst the background of nuclear warfare. When faced with certain death, each of us deal with our fragility in different ways; the play asks, does one live in the moment, or detach themselves from feelings altogether?

The Ferryman

April 24-May 20, 2017

Pioneering theatre and film director Sam Mendes makes his Royal Court debut as he reunites with Jerusalem playwright Jez Butterworth for a new play set in Derry during the Troubles. Having won an Olivier Award and Tony for Jerusalem starring British legend Mark Rylance, the return of the dream duo to the stage has already launched whispers of a West End transfer. Mendes' most recent work includes helming two successful Bond movies, Skyfall and then Spectre, however he will be concentrating further on theatre rather than returning to the 007 franchise.
