Part of New and Now: International Plays from the Royal Court Theatre

A harrowing and bitterly funny new play about Ukraine at war – seen through the eyes of the women fighting, reporting and enduring the conflict.

Over the past 20 years, the Royal Court’s International Playwrights’ Programme, with the support of the British Council, has encouraged emerging writers in all parts of the world to address subjects that they felt were urgent in their societies. In more than 70 countries and over 40 languages writers have felt inspired to write provocative new plays that are responding to our changing world and creating unique works for our times. 

Over six mornings, an outstanding group of actors and directors will bring to life new plays from some of the world’s most exciting writers.

Each reading will be followed by a Q&A with the writer and together will last 90 minutes approximately.

Following Bad Roads there will be a discussion with all the writers from the series, hosted by Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court. Lola Arias, director of MINEFIELD, will also join this discussion. This event will last approximately 2hrs 15mins in total.

New and Now is curated by Elyse Dodgson and Sam Pritchard.

Part of the International Festival and British Council season Spirit of '47
