Escaped Alone and Come and Go
1245 Jefferson Blvd
Warwick, RI 02886
Over a summer of afternoons in a suburban backyard, four seventy-something women chat amiably about topics big and small: grandchildren and lost keys, insomnia and a crippling fear of cats, chemical leaks and famine. By turns hilarious and unsettling, Churchill’s newest play explores the solace of community amid everyday fear and looming catastrophe. Don’t miss what The Observer calls “an intricate, elliptical, acutely female view of the apocalypse” by one of Britain’s most innovative living playwrights.
Plus…Samuel Beckett’s Come and Go in which three women of an “age undeterminable” meet on a bench after years apart. In less than 10 minutes, fond schoolgirl memories devolve into foreboding gossip. This beautiful, cryptic capsule of a play will leave you smiling and also haunted.
