Churchill in Short(s)? is a compilation of three rarely performed one-act plays by Caryl Churchill

            The After-Dinner Joke, originally produced for television, examines charity   through the idealism of its main character, Selby, and the politics surrounding her charitable efforts.

            This Is a Chair is a series of vignettes dramatizing the challenges of everyday communication. 

            Lovesick, originally a radio play, focuses on a therapist and his patients and   their struggles to find love.

Caryl Churchill is an English playwright known for her experiments with form and daring language. Her best-known work, Cloud 9 (1979), is considered a landmark of feminist and postmodern literature. Other major works include Top Girls (1982), The Skriker (1994), and A Number (2002).
