Caryl Churchill, one of Britain’s foremost contemporary playwrights, has created a magical, malevolent, and mad world in her daring theatrical work The Skriker. Based in English folklore, The Skriker takes childhood stories and manipulates them, placing control within the hands of a frightening, shape-shifting creature on the lookout for love and revenge. The Skriker pursues two teenagers, Lily and Josie, bringing them into a world where the rules are made to be broken and where wishes are too good to be true.
