About the show

In her first West End outing since 2016, acclaimed playwright Caryl Churchill returns to the Royal Court with four new stories, Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp. In these stories, Churchill will introduce audiences to a girl made of glass, gods and murders, a serial killer’s friends, and a secret in a bottle.

Casting for Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp includes Olivier and BAFTA award winner Toby Jones (The Birthday Party; Circle Mirror Transformation), Olivier and Obie winner Deborah Findlay (Top Girls; The Children), Sule Rimi (Sweat; Measure for Measure) Tom Mothersdale (The Cherry Orchard) and Sarah Niles (The Crucible).

Caryl Churchill’s career spans decades and is marked by a longstanding relationship with the Royal Court. From her first professional stage production premiering in 1972 to her most recent effort Escaped Alone opening at the Sloane Square venue, many of her plays which first premiered at the Royal Court are now considered classics, including Top Girls, A Number and Far Away.

Director James Macdonald has collaborated frequently with both the Royal Court and with Caryl Churchill, and has most recently worked with the Court on One For Sorrow, The Children, Escaped Alone and The Wolf From The Door.

The latest offering from one of British theatre’s modern greats, Glass. Kill. Bluebeard, and Imp. runs at the Royal Court from 18 September 2019.
