A new work exploring Ophelia, freed from HamletThree of the UK’s most acclaimed theatre artists challenge our cultural images of Ophelia in art and on stage, placing one of the most sidelined women in English literature at the centre of the narrative. Directed by Katie Mitchell, designed by Chloe Lamford, text by Alice Birch. The production is a major collaboration between the Royal Court and the Schaubühne Berlin and opened in Berlin in December 2015. It'll touch down at London's Royal Court for an extremely limited run of five days only.
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.
