Blakes Hotel & The Royal Theatre
The Royal Court Theatre is the writers’ theatre. It is the leading force in world theatre for energetically cultivating writers - undiscovered, emerging and established.
Through the writers, the Royal Court is at the forefront of creating restless, alert, provocative theatre about now.
The Royal Court’s extensive development activity encompasses a diverse range of writers and artists and includes an ongoing programme of writers’ attachments, readings, workshops and playwriting groups. Twenty years of the International Department’s pioneering work around the world means the Royal Court has relationships with writers on every continent.
Within the past sixty years, John Osborne, Samuel Beckett, Arnold Wesker, Ann Jellicoe, Howard Brenton, David Hare have started their careers at the Court.
It is because of this commitment to the writer that we believe there is no more important theatre in the world than the Royal Court.
Blakes and the Royal Court Theatre will work together throughout the year in different ways and look forward to creating this new partnership.
