  • Best Play, Writers' Guild Awards - 2017

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

Caryl Churchill's play Escaped Alone premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2016, in a production directed by James Macdonald. It was named Best Play at the 2017 Writers' Guild Awards.

Escaped Alone is also available in the collection Caryl Churchill Plays: Five.

'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.'

Press Quotes

'A light-on-its-feet, elliptical view of apocalypse… this is fantasy intricately wired into current politics. It is intimate and vast. Domestic and wild'

Observer

'Packs a formidable charge: Churchill has now perfected an elliptical style as individual and as powerful as that of Samuel Beckett… created and conveyed with mastery'

Financial Times

'A menacing, joyous, brilliant return... it's hard to imagine you'll come across a more brilliant play this year'

Time Out

'A magnificent show which demands repeated viewing to reveal its full richness'

The Arts Desk

'Packs an amazing amount into a modest frame… this is Churchill at her best'
