Synopsis: “These are substantial, provocative, immensely stylish works which create an unsettling mixture of wild laughter and profound unease…a major hit.? – Daily Telegraph

“A fiendishly clever and surreal play, timed to perfection!? – The Guardian

“One of the wittiest, most gorgeously performed theatrical events… Ms Churchill [is] possessor of one of the sharpest and most restless theatrical imaginations in the world today.? -Ben Brantley, New York Times

Blue Heart consists of two related short plays, both teasingly entertaining and brilliantly executed, one about a father and daughter, the other about a mother and son.

In Heart?s Desire, a father, mother and aunt are waiting for a woman to arrive home after years in Australia. In Blue Kettle, a middle-aged man and his girlfriend are involved in a con, making elderly women believe they are the man?s long-lost mother. But neither play is what it seems, as something catastrophic threatens to disrupt and destroy them.

Caryl Churchill has written for the stage, television and radio. A renowned and prolific playwright, her plays include Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Far Away, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?, Bliss, Love and Information, Mad Forest and A Number. In 2002, she received the Obie Lifetime Achievement Award and 2010, she was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.
