In a cottage far away, a child wakes to the sound of screaming. Who will tell her what’s really going on?

And where will the discoveries she makes that night take her in the years to come?

Caryl Churchill’s dazzling play about a world sliding into chaos receives a new production at the Donmar, twenty years on from its explosive premiere. Lyndsey Turner directs.
