Caryl Churchill is regarded as one of the greatest living playwrights, and not without reason. Second Thought is thrilled to present two of her short plays in one evening of fearless, provocative theatre. Drunk Enough to Say I Love You marries the personal and political in an entirely new way when Guy, a man, is seduced by Sam, a country. Their torrid affair hits rocky terrain as Sam’s bloodlust becomes too much for Guy, but Sam is confident he’ll come crawling back. In Here We Go, Churchill goes universal, meditating on death, what precedes it, and what follows it. This brief but powerful ode to ephemerality is sure to stay with audiences long after the evening ends.
