Quote of the day: “The time for apathy is over, the writers want to see and make change, to ask questions about our democracy. We didn’t set out to create a season of work with a theme, but could not ignore the message coming from our playwrights. Individually they are asking the necessary questions of humanity, government and society and collectively they have made their response to the moment we are in very clear. All of these plays are about revolutions — big and small acts of resistance. They are provocative, diverse and timely. They are great stories, inventively told and demanding that we consider a better future.” (Artistic director Vicky Featherstone announces the Royal Court’s new season 2014-15)
