Written by Caryl Churchill
Directed by James Macdonald

Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the backyard. Tea and catastrophe.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see the critically acclaimed new play by Caryl Churchill, one of our greatest and most inventive living playwrights.

Directed by James Macdonald (The Father), Escaped Alone is the latest play from a celebrated writer whose work includes The Skriker, Light Shining In Buckinghamshire, A Number, Far Away, Blue Heart, Serious Money, Top Girls and Cloud Nine.

Design by award-winning Miriam Buether, lighting by Olivier award-winner Peter Mumford and sound by Tony award-winner Christopher Shutt.

It's hard to imagine you'll come across a more brilliant play this year."




This is Churchill at her best."

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our front of house King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our new Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Click here for more information and updates on our Theatre entrance.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.

For more information on accessibility, ticket collection, our Backstage Bar, arrival and drop-off at our Theatre plus updates on our redevelopment, click here.
