The Royal Court Theatre in London’s Sloane Square is a landmark of the theatre scene across the pond. On February 13, the U.K. division of Samuel French announced there will be an addition to the theatre space: a theatre bookshop.

The Bookshop will be located in the theatre’s Balcony Bar and will open its doors March 5.

“We are thrilled to reopen a bookshop in London, especially at the iconic Royal Court Theatre. When we closed our shop in Fitzroy Street last year, we were overwhelmed by messages of support,” said managing director of Samuel French U.K. Douglas Schatz in a statement.

“This is a thrilling and significant new partnership, which allows us to re-imagine and share the loveliest public space in our building—our Balcony Bar—giving audiences, readers and writers a very special new resource,” added Royal Court Executive Producer Lucy Davies.

The Bookshop will feature a catalog of theatrical texts and events with playwrights and industry professionals. The store features a design by Haworth Tompkins, who supervised the 2000 refurbishing of the theatre.
