Theatre Upstairs production management files

Scope and Content

The original production management and stage management files for each production have been elided to create one record series. Visiting theatre companies, where they have performed at the Royal Court Theatre upstairs have been included in this series. Rehearsed readings, workshops, concerts and other events have been given a separate record series.

The files most commonly contain correspondence notably between the playwright and artistic director, performance contracts, rehearsal notes, stage management information and nightly show reports.
