part of Wanted Something
a month-long rep celebrating the work of Caryl Churchill
"You need to plunge in. What else are you going to do?"
Nell wants a level playing field. Angela wants to escape. And Val wants more.
Set in England’s Fen Country, this gripping work by Caryl Churchill interrogates the life of longing. A community of working-class women, each fighting to carve her way in life, teeter between selfless adherence to duty and self-abnegation. In a time and place where roles are prescribed and fixed and power is ascribed to the few, four generations of women battle for fulfillment and survival.
A play about longing to be other than and far from where you are.
Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn prize.
