    *** Given the unfolding situation with COVID-19 in Australia we have made the difficult but necessary decision to indefinitely postpone Escaped Alone and we will no longer be able to stage it as part of the 2020 season.

    This is a play for the end of the world. Four women in their seventies sit in a suburban backyard, convivially chatting. At first it is almost too recognisable – but there is a frightening and powerful world beneath the surface – a work of visionary theatre.

    Is Caryl Churchill the greatest living playwright in the world? In a theatrical poem, about an hour long, she catches the complexity of the 21st century. And just look at that cast! – Eamon Flack, Artistic Director
