The theatre has an assignment from the government to perform classical theatre, newly written Swedish and international theatre, and theatre for children and youth. The theatre is owned by the state. The current Managing and Artistic Director is Eirik Stubø.

The Royal Dramatic Theatre’s building at Nybroplan in Stockholm has been the theatre’s home since 1908. This great art noveau-building houses five stages. The Main Stage seats up to 770 spectators. A separate black box-stage is situated a few blocks away, at Linnégatan.
