In this collection of plays from one of our finest dramatists, Caryl Churchill demonstrates her remarkable ability to find new forms to express profound truths about the world we live in. Complete with a new introduction by the author, this volume contains:

Seven Jewish Children (Royal Court Theatre, London, 2009): a short play about seven families wondering how to protect their children, written at the time of the bombing of Gaza by Israel in 2008–9.

Love and Information (Royal Court, 2012): a fast-moving kaleidoscope in which more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.

Ding Dong the Wicked (Royal Court, 2012): two families on opposite sides of a war, locked in identical hatred.

Here We Go (National Theatre, 2015): a play about dying and being dead.

Escaped Alone (Royal Court, 2016): three old friends and an unexpected neighbour have tea in a sunny back yard, and face catastrophes.

Pigs and Dogs (Royal Court, 2016): a look at how colonialism crushed the fluidity of sexuality in Africa and brought a new intolerance, as shown in the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2014.

Also included are three previously unpublished short plays, each written in response to political events: War and Peace Gaza Piece (2014), Tickets are Now On Sale (2015) and Beautiful Eyes (2017). These three plays are also available separately in the collection Three Short Plays.

'The wit, invention and structural ingenuity of Churchill's work are remarkable… she never does anything twice' Telegraph

'The most dazzlingly inventive living dramatist in the English language' New York Times
