Abstract

Royal Court: International is the first full-length study of the Royal Court Theatre's International Department. It charts the engagement of the UK's premiere theatre for new writing with an internationalist agenda and takes readers inside the process developed by the Court for the workshop projects it has undertaken in different parts of the world since the late 1990s. Covering the theatre's unique programming of international plays and seasons, it highlights new writing from different parts of the globe, including France, Spain, Germany, Russia, Eastern Europe, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Columbia, Iran, the Near East, North Africa, Nigeria and India. First-hand accounts of the work appear in contributions from Stephen Daldry, Elyse Dodgson and Vicky Featherstone, and in interviews with Marcos Barbosa (Brazil), Anupama Chandrasekhar (India), Dominic Cooke, Sasha Dugdale, Marius von Mayenburg (Germany), Mark Ravenhill and Indhu Rubasingham.
