Bluets

Until June 29, 2024

Adapted by Margaret Perry from Maggie Nelson's genre-defying prose poem Bluets and directed by Katie Mitchell, join Emma D'Arcy, Ben Whishaw and Kayla Meikle as they translate this meditation of pain, grief and heartbreak inspired by the colour blue this spring at the Royal Court. Long associated with depression and sadness, the colour has often inspired artists in the depths of personal struggle and torment. Reflecting on the work of creators including Joni Mitchell, Derek Jarman, Andy Warhol and Bille Holiday, expect an enthralling and philosophical night at the theatre, one that is likely to stick with you long after you leave the auditorium.

ECHO (Every Cold-Hearted Oxygen)

July 13 - August 27, 2024

In each performance, a fresh performer steps onto the stage, completely unaware of the performance awaiting them. With no prior practice, they rely solely on the script as their compass, embarking on a journey through the playwright's narrative. Is the playwright truly broadcasting live from his Berlin apartment, or is there more to the story? ECHO compels us to grapple with the sensation of being an immigrant, not only in space but also across epochs.For fans of experimental theater, Omar Elerian's Every Cold-Hearted Oxygen is as exciting as it is unique.

September 20 - November 15, 2024

Two-time Tony Award winner John Lithgow returns to the London stage, appearing as Roald Dahl in this vital new portrait of the author and his widely publicized antisemitic views. Described by playwright Mark Rosenblatt as an "uncomfortably funny, urgent and provocative night in the theatre", the drama takes place at the height of Dahl's best-selling career, concerning the fallout from his interview with The New Statesman, in which his dangerous opinions first became public. An apt subject for both our current times and the venue and its recent history, Giants is set to be an unmissable critique of the beloved children's author and the contrast of rhetoric and opinion.
