Caryl Churchill’s 1977 classic is a deft, sometimes demanding play that becomes a hymn of those who, for a brief moment, catch a glimpse of a brighter world.
It’s 1649, and after a bloody civil war, England is a kingdom which has beheaded its king. But what will the brave new world look like? And who gets to decide how it will work? From the corners of the country, self-taught geniuses, inspired souls, mad outsiders, share their ideas – as the new bosses start acting exactly like the old ones.
And just when nothing seems to have changed, those who have lost most come together – maybe they have found the light after all.
"Last year, during the time of the theatres being closed (there’s an appropriately seventeenth century phrase), we brought some actors into the building to simply read plays. This one rang as loudly as a cathedral bell – it’s a brilliant piece of writing, and it’s brilliant in its vision too. If you think our stages could do with more ideas and ambition, come and spend a night with this visionary, illuminating play. And see Wayside Bride too – the experience of seeing the union of them on the same set will make both plays all the more haunting and rich."– Eamon Flack
