The latest work from one of the world's greatest playwrights: a short play that is as fresh and unusual as anything Caryl Churchill has written. A child is shut in her room, a dog is dead in the road, someone is kissing her brother-in-law. A family locked in hatred is sending a son to war. And meanwhile in another country . . .

About the Author:

Caryl Churchill is probably the most respected female dramatist in the English-speaking world. She is the author of some twenty plays including Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Serious Money, The Skriker, Blue Heart, Far Away, A Number, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You and Seven Jewish Children – seen and admired all over the world.

Review:

"An intriguing work, with an underlying atmosphere of unease and menace reminiscent of Pinter... it nags away in the memory long after you have left the theatre" - The Telegraph

"The best short play since Harold Pinter's Mountain Language." - Mark Lawson, Front Row

"A nationalist epic in shorthand... the play kicks in and detonates slowly inside your skull as you leave the building." - Whatsonstage.com

"As always Churchill seems inventive, coolly socialist, bleak yet dazzling, a bit of a shaman." - Evening Standard

"Churchill implies that all societies today seethe with a paranoia that turns every knock at the door into a threat, and that we all-too-easily translate our private range into public violence. She also comes up with some graphically concrete images: a dog dead in the road, a child locked in a room, anger at "ugly little houses right in the middle of the view.'" - The Guardian

"As ever, Churchill's mastery of language is key... Ding Dong borders on the harrowing...but it also has a streak of black humour a mile wide." - Time Out (London)
