‘I’m walking down the street and there’s a door in the fence open and inside there are three women I’ve seen before.’
Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the back yard. Tea and catastrophe.
From award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill, Escaped Alone combines neighbourly chit-chat with visions of apocalyptic horror. Providing a uniquely female version of the Armageddon, four seemingly normal women sit down for a chat over tea over several summer afternoons; but what emerges about each of their pasts, as well as what lies in store for them, could never be expected.
