Fitting into Society


The Royal Court Theatre is Britain's leading national theatre company and are well known for producing plays that deal with current day issues in society. Between now and January, they will have three new productions that focus on belonging. At one time or another we all feel like we don't really fit in, but for some, finding a place to call home or someone to call a friend, is a constant search.

Routes
20th September - 12th October, 20

Routes explores the issue of immigration, by following the story of three people: a stowaway, a deportee, and a man who has lived in Britain all his life, but is still cast as a foreigner. All these people want to live here, but Lisa wants them out.

Let The Right One In
29th November - 21st December, 12-32

Based on the 2004 Swedish novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let The Right One In is about a boy called Oskar, who is constantly bullied. He eventually finds comfort in the form of a girl called Eli, who just happens to be a very, very old vampire.

Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby
9th-18th January, 12-25

Samuel Beckett's trilogy of monologues is to be performed by Lisa Dwan in a one-woman show. In Not I a disembodied mouth speaks in a stream of consciousness, while Rockaby explores a prematurely aged woman's loneliness. Footfalls shows the harrowing moments of a daughter waiting for her mother to die.

Although tickets are usually 12 plus, those under twenty-six can buy seats for 10, and if you go on a Monday, all seats are 10.
