Adams Supports New Writing
- Football captain helps Royal Court theatre

TONY ADAMS launches the Royal Court's Young Writer's Festival tonight. Actor-director Richard Wilson joins Adams in support of the month long tribute to 13-26 year-old playwrights. The Imprint mini-season runs in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs until November 23.

Adams is a keen theatregoer as well as a football lover. Royal Court writer Louise Ramsden previously benefited from the ex-England and Arsenal captain's patronage, although this season Miranda Howard Williams' tribute to Arsenal supporters looks likely to attract more support.

Other plays programmed by artistic director Ian Rickson cover a wide range of topics. Just A Bloke concerns an ex-artist struggling to reconcile himself to his family, A Day In Dull Armour involves a checkout girl and her unusual co-worker, and The One With the Oven revolves around small-town life in Bromley. Actor-director Richard Wilson has a stab at bringing the younger playwrights' work to life, whilst James Menzies-Kitchin Award winner Joseph Hill-Gibbins directs 26 year old Emma Rosoman's play.
