The Royal Court Theatre returns to the Edinburgh International Festival with a major new residency for emerging international writers curated in partnership with the British Council and a network of theatres across the UK.

Over three weeks, they’ll see new work across the festival, take part in discussions with renowned international artists and build new relationships with collaborators from across the country.
