I go to the RC to see exciting new writing.
Generally that is what they offer.
Not this time.
Well, some young people later become wealthy and many educational bodies and youth organisations persistently contact former students and participants to encourage donations. Not all donors are so selfish as to only donate to organisations for their own present benefit. My personal view is that, under Dominic Cooke, the Royal Court pandered far too much in its choice of plays to a wealthy niche of supporters.
I expect that the Royal Court will now be producing a much wider range of new theatre, almost all involving writers amongst the creative team, but only some coming into the narrow category of "new writing", by which I mean the sort of script that could arrive in an envelope or attached to an e-mail all ready to be staged. For example, several writers contributed to Gastronauts but it's a less clunky, more sophisticated beast than "new writing".
