91. PLAYWRIGHT: Caryl Churchill Beckett’s Babies

We return to our Playwright Series where we look at a single playwright and their large body of work. In this episode, we discuss the life and work of CARYL CHURCHILL. We read the three plays: Owners (1972), Cloud Nine (1979), and Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp (2019)  to share our thoughts on Naomi Churchill's craft in playwriting.
