The Primetime plays were developed during the Young Writers Festival and Peckham Young Playwrights project in 2012, with the help of Royal Court playwrights Nick Payne and Rachel De-lahay. The plays were performed in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs in 2013, as part of a programme called Kids Court, where children took over the theatre. A selection of the plays were then performed for the Royal Court’s Primetime Schools Tour in London primary schools in 2014.
