NSFWAcclaimed young British playwright Lucy Kirkwood makes her Royal Court debut with NSFW, a sharp contemporary comedy about "money, sex and Photo-shop" that takes a sideways glance at power games and privacy in the world of the media, and beyond. Short for 'Not Safe For Work', NSFW no doubt includes more offensive material and expletives than the Leveson Inquiry contained injunctions. Carrie's getting them out for the lads; Charlotte's just grateful to have a job; Sam's being asked to sell more than his body and Aidan's trying to keep Doghouse from going under. Nominated for an Evening Standard Best Newcomer award, Kirkwood's theatre credits include Tinderbox (Bush Theatre), Beauty and the Beast (National Theatre) and Hedda (Gate Theatre), while her CV includes a stint as screenwriting for Skins. Simon Godwin, Associate Director at the Royal Court, directs this intriguing new play.

 

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.
