Blue Heart


Quick Overview

By Caryl Churchill

Visionary playwright Caryl Churchill brings together two exhilarating one act plays.

Heart’s Desire sees a family awaiting their daughter’s return from Australia, though in a series of alternative scenarios, this commonplace domestic scene is invaded by the surprising and the ridiculous.

Blue Kettle tells the story of conman Derek and the five women he misleads into believing he is their biological son. Try as he might, Derek’s plans are scuppered when two words start to take on a life of their own…

In Churchill’s ever-inventive style, the plays in Blue Heart pull apart language and structure in a way that is theatrically remarkable and fast-paced, in a stirring yet truthful exploration of family and relationships.
