Watch the actors holding court
Treading the boards is a famous synonym and description of stage acting, and the boards of the Royal Court Theatre London have seen some historic moments throughout its long life. In the 1950s, the theatre played host to no less than legendary English stage actor Laurence Olivier, who performed "The Entertainer" (1957) in this very theatre. In the 1970s, Irish playwright and author Samuel Beckett saw his play "Not I" take place in the magnificent surrounds of the Royal Court.

With a capacity of 380 seated downstairs and 80 seated in the upstairs theatre, the Royal Court Theatre plays to approximately 120,000 people per year, according to the official website. The theatre may have originated over 150 years ago, but little of the original architecture remains in place – that’s not to say the building isn’t absolutely stunning – it wouldn’t be Grade II listed otherwise. The majority of the theatre was rebuilt in the 1990s, excluding the façade and the auditorium. So, the Royal Court Theatre London can boast a long history alongside modern fixtures and fittings.
