More Description

"The Theatre of Caryl Churchill" documents and analyses the major plays and productions of Britain's greatest living female playwright, who has been challenging audiences for over four decades. Drawing on hundreds of never-before-seen archival sources from America and Britain, it provides an essential guide to her ground-breaking work for students and theatre-goers. The author maps Churchill's work across five key areas, providing a thematic approach that illuminates connections between plays, exploring the major works and drawing parallels with lesser known work. Through its five interlocking parts, "The Theatre of Caryl Churchill "tells a story about Churchill, her work, and its place in contemporary drama. Analyzing the rehearsal room, the stage, and the printed script, the book demonstrates how Churchill has pushed the boundaries of contemporary dramatic aesthetics while consistently asking pressing political and theoretical questions.
