Bruce Norris's 'The Pain and the Itch' was the first play that Dominic Cooke, Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre, directed in his inaugural season. Therefore, it is very apt that his final directing project as Artistic Director will be another of Bruce Norris's works. 'The Low Road' will take to the stage in the downstairs theatre this spring and tells the story of a young entrepreneur who sets out on a quest for wealth with priceless ambition and a purse of gold. Previous collaborations from Norris and Cooke include the multi award-winning 'Clybourne Park' which saw Norris receive a Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, and Cooke nominated for an Olivier Award.
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.
