Greenwich Theatre to reopen with trio of Caryl Churchill plays
Paul McGann will star in three short plays.
The Greenwich Theatre will be welcoming audiences through its doors once more this summer with a trio of Caryl Churchill plays. Collectively titled Bad Nights and Odd Days, performances will run at the south-east London venue from 23 June - 10 July.
Bad Nights and Odd Days will include three of Caryl Churchill’s plays. The three plays include:
Abortive: A married couple reconcile their differences after a shocking event. Abortive was first broadcast as a radio play in 1971.
Seagulls: Inspired by Churchill’s life, Seagulls tells of a person who loses the ability to write. Seagulls was written in 1978.
Three More Sleepless Nights: First staged in Soho in 1980, four individuals argue often, but try to hide their actual emotions.
The upcoming Caryl Churchill plays will be led by actor Paul McGann, and directed by James Haddrell. Speaking about the season, Haddrell said: “Caryl Churchill is undoubtedly one of the most important British playwrights of the past half century, and thanks to support from Arts Council England I am excited to be able to share some of her earliest, most rarely performed work… This collection of intimate, quietly heart-stopping dramas will offer a powerful, moving evening of live theatre - the kind of evening that we have all been missing so much.”
Bad Nights and Odd Days is at the Greenwich Theatre from 23 June - 10 July.
