Despite its posh-sounding title, the Royal Court has been a major force in promoting new plays in London - through its Young Writers scheme, working with writers on their new plays, and international work with playwrights in developing countries. Royal Court playwrights include the late Sarah Kane, Ella Hickson, Roy Williams, debbie tucker green and many more. The plays are contemporary, often edgy and pull no punches in their take on modern life. Book online as tickets sell out quickly. Its programmes are the script (plus cast list) and are good value, given that they cost around £3. The bookshop sells many of their plays, and you may find a 'lucky dip' where you get 3 plays for £10. It has a nice (but pricey) bar cafe. Nearest Underground: Sloane Square. (Don't try and drive here - it's all really expensive or 'residents' only parking.')
