About Escaped Alone and What If If Only

By Caryl Churchill

Directed by Anne-Louise Sarks

Caryl Churchill is widely considered one of the world's greatest living playwrights, with a catalogue of works that spectacularly expose what lays beneath ordinary life.

In this world-first pairing, Melbourne Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Anne-Louise Sarks directs two separate Churchill works: What If If Only, a theatrical miniature starring Alison Bell that UK critics described as packing more punch than most playwrights manage in two hours; and Escaped Alone, a visionary play about afternoon tea and the apocalypse starring Helen Morse alongside Deidre Rubenstein and Debra Lawrance.

Don't miss this masterclass in acting from two exceptional casts, showcasing the dazzling alchemy of Churchill's writing.
