Three More Sleepless Nights

By Caryl Churchill
Published in volume Caryl Churchill: Shorts

An explosive short play about human interaction and love-tangled relationships.

One double bed. Two couples. Three short acts of love-tangled conversation that expertly twist and turn, from existential angst to sci-fi films; from explosive arguments to long silences.

Caryl Churchill’s compelling play Three More Sleepless Nights is a powerful depiction of the fabric of human relationships through the eyes of two ill-fated couples.

It was first performed at Soho Poly Theatre, London, in 1980.
