Royal Court Theatre & Jerwood Theatre

The Royal Court Theatre is situated on Sloane Square in the heart of London's trendy Belgravia and Chelsea. The building was originally designed by Walter Emden in 1888 and remained mostly unaltered until 1932, when it was converted into a cinema. The turning point for the Royal Court Theatre was the English Stage Company who occupied the theatre in 1956 with its ground breaking 'Look Back in Anger' production. Under the controversial artistic direction of George Devine, the trend was set for the theatre as a true playwrights' theatre putting on controversial productions and inviting formerly banned productions and plays that were once considered immoral, subversive or blasphemous. The Royal Court Theatre is still a leading force in World Theatre and is still producing new plays of high quality and expressing problems from society to the stage. The Royal Court's pivotal role in the promotion of new playwrights is undisputed and confirmed by the New York Times that recently described the Royal Court Theatre as 'The most important theatre in Europe'.
