This article deals with the new productions put on in Britain during the first decade of the XXI century. There were some 3000 new plays staged in the first ten yeras of the new millenium. Their main themes were the war in Iraq (and the Anglo-American “Special Relationship”) and the new ideas about race conflict and multiple identities. But also the banking collapse in USA and its relevance to British economy. Special attention is given to the plays by the “old” authors, David Hare, Caryl Churchill, Mark Ravenhill, and by some of the “new” ones, such as Lucy Prebble and Tanika Gupta. In the last sixty years British theatre has been a playwrights’ theatre. Will it still be in the next decade?
