Royal Court Theatre
Opened in 1888 as the New Court Theatre replacing an earlier building of 1870. Following war damage the theatre was reopened in 1952 becoming the home of the new English Stage Company in 1956, a non-commercial theatre dedicated to producing new and often controversial work by innovative writers from the UK and around the world. John Osborne's 'Look Back in Anger' is now considered the play that marks the beginning of modern British drama. By pushing back the boundaries of what was possible or acceptable throughout the 1960s, battles over censorship led to the abolition of the Office of Lord Chamberlain in 1968.
Reopened in following major refurbishment and modernisation in 2000.
