Look back: 50 readings, 50 writers, 50 years

Sur le site du Royal Court Theatre.
16 January - 24 March

A series of fifty rehearsed readings represents an epic journey through the second half of the twentieth century, exploring key moments in the development of modern drama. The readings begin with David Hare directing THE ENTERTAINER by John Osborne, and conclude with SHINING CITY by Conor McPherson.

After reading hundreds of plays we have chosen fifty writers who cumulatively chart the evolution of the Royal Court, while also holding a mirror up to their own era. The list of fifty featured plays is not intended to be definitive, but a sample selection of over 850 new plays the Royal Court has originated.

From a Nigerian village to a hotel room in Leeds, from the kitchen sink to glam rock, from English surrealism to in-yer-face, the fifty readings will pay tribute to the huge diversity of voices that have been heard at the Royal Court over the last five decades.

Where possible the original company of actors and directors will be invited back to reprise their roles. There will also be a chance to talk with the playwright following some of the readings and opportunities to meet the original creative teams.
