Matt Smith takes centre stage in Anthony Nielson's return to the Royal Court
Anthony Neilson isn't a stranger to the Royal Court. Renowned for a pioneering, boundary-pushing, imaginative approach to theatre, his credits at the Writer's Theatre include the award-winning plays The Censor (winner of the Writers Guild and Time Out Award) and The Wonderful World Of Dissocia (Best Production winner in both the TMA and Critic’s Awards For Theatre In Scotland). His latest play tells the story of a film director on an obsessive quest to capture the perfect light. With a cast including Matt Smith of Dr Who fame, Amanda Drew, Tamara Lawrance, Jonjo O’Neill and Richard Pyros, this is a hard-hitting new play. 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. ★★★★☆ "A powder keg." – The Stage ★★★★☆ "Neilson's study of artistic pretentiousness bursts with cracking one-liners and outrageous slapstick." – Evening Standard ★★☆☆☆ "…a perfect waste of time and space." – The Telegraph Recommended for ages 14 and up.
