Court productions play in Peckham

First Published 2 September 2011, Last Updated 2 September 2011

The Royal Court’s Theatre Local project, which last year brought a selection of the theatre’s shows to an empty shop in Elephant and Castle, is to relocate to Peckham this autumn.

A former cricket bat factory, The Bussey Building, will stage productions of debbie tucker green’s new drama truth and reconciliation (29 September to 15 October) and The Westbridge (3 to 19 November), the new play from Young Writers’ Programme graduate Rachel De-lahay.

Dominic Cooke, Artistic Director of the Royal Court commented: “The first stage of the Theatre Local project at Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre last year was an exciting experience for us. Our aim was to take Royal Court plays to the heart of a community attracting audiences who may not have otherwise visited our Sloane Square home. We loved being part of the everyday life of the centre, our actors relished performing there and from the fantastic feedback we received from theatregoers, our audiences felt the same.

“We had always hoped to grow and develop the Theatre Local project and the Bussey Building in Peckham feels likes the perfect base from which to continue the venture – a former cricket bat factory with a history of its own and a burgeoning arts and culture scene in another thriving, energetic and diverse part of London.”

This second season of Theatre Local builds on 2010’s offering, with the two productions playing longer runs in Peckham than in Elephant and Castle, and The Westbridge receiving its world premiere at the former factory before moving back to the Royal Court later in the year.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
