Bad Nights and Odd Days Tickets

Three short plays by Caryl Churchill

Review this show


Celebrating 50 years since Caryl Churchill’s short play Abortive was broadcast on BBC Radio 3, we are delighted to transfer the play to the stage alongside rare revivals of one-act plays Seagulls (1978) and Three More Sleepless Nights(1980).

Best known for major works from the iconic Top Girls to the more recent A Number and Drunk Enough To Say I Love You, Churchill’s work spans the personal and the political, the local and global. For this intimate collection,Abortive is about a married couple reeling in the aftermath of a shocking event; Three More Sleepless Nights is about the arguments that we all know so well, where we speak too much or don’t speak at all; and in Seagulls, by far the most personal to Churchill, a telekinetic’s loss of power offers a powerful allegory about losing the ability to write.

Uniting all three plays is the razor-sharp, unforgettable writing that has made Caryl Churchill one of this country’s most important playwrights.
