Read our four-star review of Cuckoo, by Michael Wynne, now in performances at the Royal Court to 19 August.
“I do love some David Attenborough, but even he can be a bit of a miz bag now, always going on about climate change… You don’t want to think about the end of the world before you go to bed on a Sunday night.”

Upstairs, 17–year-old Megyn has locked herself in her grandmother’s bedroom and refuses to come out. And no one is entirely sure why…
Michael Wynne’s dark comedy explores the safety of home and the different ways we cope in our increasingly uncertain world.
Olivier and BAFTA Award-winning playwright, Michael Wynne returns to the Royal Court with his new play directed by Artistic Director, Vicky Featherstone.
