First Staged:
Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, 1977


By Caryl Churchill

Paperback £9.99£7.99

An early play by one of our leading dramatists, written before her breakthrough successes with Cloud Nine and Top Girls.

Like a painting by Escher 'where the objects can exist on paper, but would be impossible in life', Traps is a mindbending dramatic concoction in which the characters can be thought of as living all their possibilities at once.

Press Quotes
