In April 2011, Sir Tom Stoppard CBE, Playwright said:
The Royal Court is a miracle: it was the most interesting, exciting theatre in London when I first went there more than fifty years ago, and it can still make that claim now, when there is much more competition for that title. The health of the Court is a marker for the health of theatre in Britain.
In April 2011, Sir David Hare, Playwright said:
For over 50 years, it has acted as the favoured academy of playwriting for the significant majority of young and leading British playwrights. Its recent resurgence, under its present artistic director, is the single most heartening aspect of London theatre in the new century.
