“Substantial, provocative, immensely stylish works which create an unsettling mixture of wild laughter and profound unease . . . A major hit.” — Telegraph

“A fiendishly clever and surreal play, timed to perfection.” — Guardian

“The play of the year.” — Independent

Blue Heart consists of two related short plays, Heart’s Desire and Blue Kettle. Both are teasingly entertaining and brilliantly executed: one about a father and daughter, the other about a mother and son. In Churchill’s ever-inventive style, the plays pull apart language and structure in a way that is fast-paced and theatrically remarkable, in a stirring yet truthful exploration of family and relationships.

Nearly twenty years after its Royal Court premiere, this edition was published alongside the first major revival by the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, and Tobacco Factory, Bristol, in 2016.

Caryl Churchill is considered one of the world’s greatest living playwrights. Her plays include Serious Money, Cloud 9, Top Girls, The Skriker, Far Away, A Number, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?, Love and Information, Here We Go and Escaped Alone.
