Description - Caryl Churchill Plays 4 by Caryl Churchill
Published to mark her 70th birthday - the fourth volume of the collected plays of one of the best playwrights alive. After the music-theatre piece, Hotel, from 1997, Churchill charted a course in This is a Chair, Blue Heart (both also premiered in 1997) and Far Away (2000) towards an increasingly extreme and unsettling mix of surrealism and a passionate engagement with big issues. A Number (2002) and Drunk Enough to Say I Love You? (2006) are less surreal but more overtly political, dealing respectively with cloning and with the Anglo-US axis. The volume ends with her version of Strindberg's, A Dream Play made for the National Theatre in 2005.
