The Sewing Group

November 10-December 22, 2016

As part of its 2016/17 season, the Royal Court's Jerwood Stage presents a brand-new play by author E V Crowe, taking place in the pre-Industrial Revolution era. 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....


January 10-February 11, 2017

A damning indictment of DWP's Fit To Work scheme, Katherine Soper's debut, Bruntwood Prize-winning play paints a desperate struggle for two adult siblings to survive below the poverty line. Tamsin works on a zero-hour contract packing merchandising for an unnamed online retailer; her brother Matt is stuck at home battling severe mental illness. However when his benefits are stopped and he is declared fit to work, Tamsin becomes embroiled in a battle of wills against the authorities to get the support they both need.

Escaped Alone

January 25-February 11, 2017

Following its 2016 premiere, Caryl Churchill's garden-set apocalyptic drama returns for a short engagement at the Royal Court Theatre before embarking on a UK tour. In true Churchill fashion, the playwright takes a stab at corruption, the decimation of society and the powerful. Four elderly women take tea in a sunshine-filled garden - but their conversations are far from being about Jam and Jerusalem. At first bemoaning the state of today's Britain, things take a decidedly darker turn when events unfold...
