A girl made of glass. Gods and murders. A serial killer's friends. And a secret in a bottle. Four stories by Caryl Churchill.

Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp. premiered at the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs, London, in September 2019, in a production directed by James Macdonald.

'Caryl Churchill has remade the landscape of contemporary drama – and earned herself a place among the greats' Guardian

‘I can see her just. Most people can’t see her at all.’

Press Quotes

'A thrilling reminder of why Caryl Churchill is our greatest living playwright... spans everything from poetry to surrealism to tell four tales that feel both urgent to our current moment and like timeless, amber-cast fairytales... this whirlwind ride through Churchill's relentless imagination is not to be missed'

Evening Standard

'In her captivating quartet of new works Churchill casts an immediate spell over her audience, catches everyone off-guard with laugh-out-loud humour, then silences the auditorium with shards of pained recognition... the sheer audacity of the plays is exhilaratingly fresh'

The Stage

'A fascinating four-part exploration into our appetite for blood-soaked myth... funny and macabre... endlessly intriguing'

Guardian

'Audacious, haunting and often horribly funny... as aesthetically pleasing as it is droll'

Independent

'A dazzling quartet of plays about the murderous power of stories... a remarkable work... a testament to a writer whose talent burns almost too bright to look at'

Time Out

'Funny and clever... words drop like stones on a pond, creating endless ripples... a magnificent, invigorating night at the theatre'
