31 Mar - 7 May. Set on the edges of Heathrow Airport, Wastwater is an elliptical triptych – a snapshot of three different couples who make a choice that will define the fallout of their future.

Harry is on the point of leaving England. Frieda knows she will never see him again. Lisa and Mark are on the point of a sexual betrayal that takes them into a place darker than they ever thought possible and Sian has a terrifying deal for Jonathan. She isn’t going to take no for an answer.

Simon Stephens’ last play at the Royal Court was Motortown in 2006. His previous plays for the Royal Court include Country Music, Herons and Bluebird. His plays elsewhere include Punk Rock at the Royal Exchange, Manchester and Lyric Hammersmith, Pornography at the Edinburgh Festival, Harper Regan at the National Theatre and On the Shore of the Wide World at the Royal Exchange, Manchester.

Katie Mitchell’s recent work includes Martin Crimp’s The City for the Royal Court, After Dido for English National Opera and the Young Vic, and Pains of Youth,…some trace of her, Waves, Three Sisters and The Seagull at the National Theatre.
