Caryl Churchill makes a triumphant return to the Royal Court
Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the backyard. Tea and catastrophe. This is a exuberant return to the Royal Court for Caryl Churchill with a play that has hit a cultural milestone with its four lead roles for women over the age of 60. A work that is both simple and ambitious, domestic and wide-reaching, it centres on these women drinking tea in the yard, discussing personal and epic catastrophe. The Royal Court Theatre is internationally renowned for energetically cultivating undiscovered, new and established writers. Known as the writers’ theatre, it opened on 8 May 1956 under George Devine who aimed to challenge and stimulate British playwriting and theatre. In celebration of its 60th year, the Royal Court has curated an awesome programme of original theatre for 2016.
