Escaped Alone - 2017 - West End

Following its premiere last year, Caryl Churchill’s critically-acclaimed play returns for a short run in Jan 2017 before going on tour.

“I’m walking down the street and there’s a door in the fence open and inside there are three women I’ve seen before.”

Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the back yard. Tea and catastrophe.


Running Time: 50 minutes

Royal Court Theatre Jerwood Theatre Downstairs

A year after its first run, Caryl Churchill's Escaped Alone returns to the Royal Court Theatre. This rather strange play is split between garden chit-chat and apocalyptic horrors, though directly juxtaposing or linking Churchill's two worlds seems naively simplistic. Its dual settings do lead to an odd overall effect; while individual moments shine, the piece as a whole seems stilted.
