The Royal Court Theatre is the writers’ theatre.
It is the leading force in world theatre for vigorously cultivating writers - undiscovered, new, and established.
Through the writers we are at the forefront of creating restless, alert, provocative theatre about now.
The uniqueness of our environment enables writers to ask questions we don’t yet know need to be asked in ways we cannot yet imagine, inspiring audiences and influencing future writers.
Through the writers we strive to constantly reinvent the theatre ecology. We seek to find, cultivate, and create tomorrow’s major writers and the classic plays of the future.
We seek stories from everywhere and create theatre for everyone, and we see our audience as one of our chief collaborators.
We invite and enable conversation and debate, allowing our writers and their ideas to reach and resonate beyond the stage, and the public to share in the thinking.
