Escaped Alone

Escaped Alone

February 28-17, 2019

Presented by The Gamm Theatre


Over a summer of afternoons in a suburban backyard, four 70-something women chat amiably about topics big and small: grandchildren and lost keys, insomnia and a crippling fear of cats, chemical leaks and famine. By turns hilarious and unsettling, Churchill’s newest play explores the solace of community amid everyday fear and looming catastrophe. Don’t miss what The Observer calls “an intricate, elliptical, acutely female view of the apocalypse” by one of Britain’s most innovative living playwrights.
