Visionary playwright Caryl Churchill brings together two exhilarating one-act plays in Blue Heart:
Heart’s Desire sees a family awaiting their daughter’s return from Australia, though the play keeps veering off in unexpected directions.
Blue Kettle tells the story of conman Derek and the five women he misleads into believing he is their biological son.
In Churchill’s ever-inventive style, the plays pull apart language and structure in a way that is theatrically remarkable and fast-paced, in a stirring yet truthful exploration of family and relationships.
The Workshop Theater is very happy to present these plays as the first in our InspiredBy series.
