Royal Court announces slate

'Bliss,' 'City' set for schedule

A French-Canadian play translated by Caryl Churchill and a cycle of works by Mark Ravenhill are among the offerings on the spring slate at London’s Royal Court Theater.

Churchill’s translation of “Bliss,” Olivier Choiniere’s play about celebrity, gets a monthlong run beginning in March.

Ravenhill show “Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat” was originally seen at the Edinburgh Fringe last year. It will play at the Court in April.

Other productions on the sked include “The City,” a surreal comic mystery by Martin Crimp, beginning performances in April; Fiona Evans’ “Scarborough,” about a dangerous romance, set for February; and “random,” the latest play by Debbie Tucker Green.

Additions join a previously announced production of David Hare’s “The Vertical Hour,” which starts a run at the Court in January.

The Court has a high New York profile this season. The London theater originally produced the Tom Stoppard show “Rock ‘n’ Roll,” which just bowed in Gotham, and the org’s revival of “The Seagull,” starring Kristin Scott Thomas, is poised to open on the Rialto in spring.
