Royal Court casts new play Seven Methods Of Killing Kylie Jenner

Now there’s a title that grabs attention! The Royal Court has announced casting for Seven Methods Of Killing Kylie Jenner, a new play about finding a voice through the internet.

Directed by Milli Bhatia, the show will star Tia Bannon (whose previous credits include The Winter’s Tale at Shakespeare’s Globe) as Kara and Danielle Vitalis (Don Juan In Soho in the West End) as Cleo.

112 Million People. That’s how many people follow her on instagram – and counting…. As if she’s like a prophet. Or a material messiah or something...”

Events in centre around Cleo when she ignores 22 calls from Kara and cuts herself off from the outside world, seeking refuge in her bedroom – but that doesn’t mean she’s been silent during that time. And on the internet, actions don’t always speak louder than words.

Seven Methods Of Killing Kylie Jenner is written by Jasmine Lee-Jones, who originally came through the Royal Court’s Young Court programme and is now in the Jerwood New Playwrights programme. The play was first commissioned through The Andrea Project – a day of free events inspired by Andrea Dunbar’s legacy. This programme formed part of the Young Court’s mission to expand the Royal Court’s commitment to new voices.

The play will run at the Royal Court’s studio theatre, the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, between Thursday 4 July and Saturday 27 July.

Tickets are available through the Royal Court website.

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.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
