Royal Court


Royal Court
   Started as a new writing theatre by George Devine, the Royal Court is the site of several theatrical causes célèbres including Look Back in Anger (1956), Saved (1965), Masterpieces (1984) and Blasted (1995). Directors such as Gaskill (1965–72) and Stafford-Clark (1972–93) developed a style of uncluttered staging, based on a belief that acting, direction and design should serve the text, which has had a strong influence on alternative theatre. This theatre’s commitment to new writing has been emphatic: many major playwrights had their early work staged here (Brenton, Churchill, Wertenbaker). The Court provides a unique link between the classical and unconventional, and is renowned for inspiring passionate responses from within and without, having as many critics as supporters.
