“Escaped Alone” and “A Number” by Caryl Churchill

9th March 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Davenham Players is kicking off its 2023 season with performances of two acclaimed one act plays from the dark and dazzling mind of Caryl Churchill.

We begin the evening with the surreal black comedy ‘Escaped Alone’. The audience are invited to tea in Sally’s back garden with her close friends, Vi and Lena, and her oddball neighbour, Mrs Jarrett. But as these four women while away a summer afternoon with idle gossip and good humour, there are deep wells of insecurity bubbling up inside each of them and a full-blown apocalypse looming just beyond the garden wall.

Our second play of the night is the biopunk thriller ‘A Number’, where we find ourselves in the home of Salter and his son, Bernard, who is reeling from the recent discovery that he is part of a human cloning experiment. While Salter swears they’ll have revenge on the scientist who stole his son’s DNA, Bernard is no longer sure he can trust his father, if he is safe from these copies of himself, and if he is truly the original after all.

‘Dark Futures’ opens Tuesday 7th March 6th to Saturday 11th March at 7:30pm.
