About Book

In About Churchill, Philip Roberts presents not only an analysis of Caryl Churchill's published work, but also an account of eleven of her unpublished pieces, lent by the playwright. Alongside a survey of the plays, the book includes comment from directors, actors, designers, dancers, a choreographer and a composer, and demonstrates her unceasing experimentation and moral courage over more than forty years.
