Royal Court Theatre is the home of the English Stage Company,
perhaps the centre of new writing in Britain. Made famous
by George Bernard Shaw and Granville-Barker in the 192'0s,
it has been kept to the forefront by writers such as Howard
Brenton, Caryl Churchill and Edward Bond.
Many famous plays have premiered
here, including several works by George Bernard Shaw, 'Look
Back in Anger' by John Osborne and 'Roots' by Arnold Wesker.
After a £25 million refurbishment, the Royal Court is London's
major venue for experimental or counter-cultural works.
There are two new performing spaces - the traditional
'Downstairs', with its main stage and a small studio theatre
on the first floor, 'Upstairs', one of London's better 'fringe
Restaurant and bar.
