A play written in response to the Romanian revolution of 1989, exploring the reactions of ordinary people to events.

What emerges is the dreadful damage done to people's lives by repression and the painful difficulties of lasting change.

Caryl Churchill's play Mad Forest was written after she, the director Mark Wing-Davey and a group of students from London's Central School of Speech and Drama went to Romania to work with acting students there.

The resulting play was first performed by students of CSSD in June 1990, only three months after their return from Romania. It was subsequently performed at the National Theatre, Bucharest, in September 1990, and opened at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in October 1990.

Mad Forest is also available in the volume Caryl Churchill Plays: Three.
