Over the past 20 years, the Royal Courts International Playwrights Programme, with the support of the British Council, has encouraged emerging writers in all parts of the world to address subjects that they felt were urgent in their societies. In more than 70 countries and over 40 languages writers have felt inspired to write provocative new plays that are responding to our changing world and creating unique works for our times.

Over six mornings, an outstanding group of actors and directors will bring to life new plays from some of the worlds most exciting writers.
