Until August 6, 2016

Arch surrealist playwright Anthony Neilson is at it again with a brand-new play in the works that will be created with a cast, ideas, but other than that, completely unscripted to begin with! Known for his in-your-face theatre style, with full-on sex and violence often shocking the chattering classes, Unreachable tells the story of an obsessive film director on the never-ending quest to find the perfect lighting setup for his art. Further than that, we are yet to find out!

Pigs and dogs

Until July 30, 2016

A shocking new short play by Caryl Churchill makes its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre's Jerwood Stage this July. Taking on the controversial anti-homosexuality laws recently passed in Uganda, this new work examines the prevailing attitudes towards same-sex relationships in Africa, showing the prejudice and fear in stark relief. At ten minutes long, this won't be taking up your whole evening, so be sure to also check out the myriad shows on show after this performance...

When a strange woman arrives in a quiet village with a cottage industry producing small hand-sewn items, at first she seems keen to join the group of sewing women and learn their way of life. However as time goes on, it becomes clear that this stranger has ulterior motives for this village - and that she is no stranger to the thread and needle.

The Children

November 17, 2016-January 14, 2017

Chimerica playwright Lucy Kirkwood returns to the Royal Court Theatre with her brand-new apocalyptic play, The Children. The winner of the 2005 PMA award, and former screenwriter for E4 series Skins, Kirkwood's work is renowned for its gritty realism and gripping social commentary. The Children follows the retirement of two nuclear scientists, quietly residing at an isolated coastal cottage whilst the world goes to chaos around them. Until one day they receive an unwelcome visitor....
