PestsAs part of the Royal Court's ongoing commitment to new writing, the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs will stage a new work by Vivienne Franzmann. Entitled Pests, it looks at two sisters trying to deal with the chaos around them in very different ways - one by trying to get out, the other digging herself deeper in. The play is directed by Lucy Morrison of Clean Break, a theatre company dedicated to dramatising the experiences of women whose lives have been affect by crime and punishment. It is part of the Jerwood New Playwright's Programme and is recommended for ages 16+.

 

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.
