Workshop Theatre Society Presents:
ESCAPED ALONE

WRITTEN BY

Caryl Churchill

DIRECTOR

Breezy Manning

About

Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the backyard. Tea and catastrophe. Caryl Churchill's convention-defying play juxtaposes backyard tea with environmental disaster, exploring themes of politics, crisis, communication and female endurance.

 

"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."


Escaped Alone viciously satirizes a contemporary capitalist culture which it portrays as moribund and rapacious. At the same time, it celebrates the (often unheard) voices and feelings of aging women, merging the resilience it might take to survive an imminent apocalypse with the resilience it takes to survive 70 years as a woman in a moribund and rapacious culture.
