Reviews

“It is a welcome addition to the history of an influential theatre, and a testament to theatre’s enduring capacity to have cultural and political value within an increasingly mediatized, globalized world. It will appeal to students and researchers interested in the Royal Court’s history and its commitment to developing new writing both at home and abroad. … will provide a rich source of research material for those interested in the work of the artists involved.” (William Platt, Studies in Theatre and Performances, Vol. 35 (3), September, 2015)

“Royal Court International provides the first study of its kind into the work of the International Department at the Royal Court Theatre. … This publication will be accessible to scholars, students and enthusiasts of theatre alike.” (Nicholas Holden, Platform Postgraduate Journal of Theatre Arts, Vol. 9 (2), 2015)
