The Royal Court Theatre in London has been home to the English Stage Company since 1956. The theater is known for its commitment to new work, and, in addition to being known for being the birthplace of The Rocky Horror Show, is known for being the theater that debuted "Look Back in Anger," which some consider the starting point of modern British drama.

The current building, in Sloane Square, dates back to 1880, and has been a theater, a cinema, and then a theater again. The theater includes the Theatre Downstairs, a 400-seat theater with the standard proscenium arch, and the Theatre Upstairs, which seats 63 and is the original space where Rocky Horror was presented.
