37: Royal Court Theatre on Sloane Square in Chelsea

Royal Court TheatreThe first play to feature an ironing board on stage premiered here in 1956 with John Osborne's 'Look Back in Anger'. The storyline was a major departure from the usual material that had been shown up until that time and heralded a new era of realist theatre. Behind the original facade, the theatre has been completely modernised with the help of lottery funding. Downstairs is the 380 seat main auditorium and there is a 85 seat studio theatre upstairs.
