CARYL

For December 2014 we will be reading the play ‘Cloud Nine’ by British playwright Caryl Churchill.

Caryl Churchill (born 3 September 1938) is an English dramatist known for her use of non-naturalistic techniques and feminist themes, dramatisation of the abuses of power, and exploration of sexual politics. She is acknowledged as a major playwright in the English language and one of world theatre’s most influential writers.

Interesting articles and links we found include …

As always, get your copy from your local charity shop, independent bookshop or library – not Amazon! Looking forward to hearing what you all think! We are meeting at 7pm Wednesday, 10th December 2014 at X Marks the Bokship at Matt’s Gallery, E3.
