BirdlandSherlock's Andrew Scott re-teams with Simon Stephens in a new play, Birdland, taking on the role of a rock star at the height of his fame. During the last week of a successful tour, Paul is starting to wonder about the "big questions" in life. The world premiere of the play marks Scott's first appearance at the Royal Court since he starred opposite Ben Whishaw in Mike Bartlett's Olivier award-winning play Cock. Sea Wall, his last collaboration with Stephens reached near cult status and was made into a film and transferred from the Bush to the National Theatre's the Shed in 2013. Carrie Cracknell, whose recent credits include 'A Doll's House' at the Young Vic which transferred to the West End and is set to go to Broadway, directs the play staged in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at the Royal Court.

 

About Royal Court Theatre

Dedicated to putting on new work and discovering new voices, the Royal Court Theatre was seen as 'the most important theatre in Europe' by no less an authority than The New York Times. In 1956 it staged John Osborne's Look Back in Anger - a landmark in modern British drama - and the Sloane Square theatre has continued to produce work of an equally high standard, with numerous productions making a successful transition to the West End.
