The York St John University and York Theatre Royal Prize awards one final year performance student the opportunity to develop their work with mentoring from our team, culminating in a Studio Theatre Performance. When something major happens, we find six chairs, six light bulbs and five characters suddenly presented with the freedom to think for themselves. Of course, things get heated and doubt quickly settles among the group.

‘You’re lovely. I’m crazy about you. All those words I’m using, don’t you see, they’ve never been said before.’ Emma is married to Robert, who is the best friend of Jerry, who is the lover of Emma. A lingering glance, one drink too many, a flirtation at a party: Betrayal is the story of a love triangle, stretching over the course of nine years and weaving a labyrinth of betrayals, that explores the high price of passion and the damage inflicted by desire.

Full of humour and bawdy wit, this new comedy transports us into the wanton world of the English Restoration. King Charles 2nd lies ill, Nell Gwyn, his royal whore, once the brightest star of the Restoration theatre, rages against her fate. What will become of her if Charles is summoned to his Maker? What perils will befall the English nation?
We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded £2,850,000 by Arts Council England to undertake a major redevelopment of Theatre Royal. Coupled with grants from City of York Council and other trusts and foundations, we are close to raising the £4.1 million that will allow us to make the most significant changes to the Theatre since Patrick Gwynne’s 1967 extension.
