Caryl Churchill's Fourth Play Imp Announced

Published on Fri 7 Jun 2019

Following last month’s announcement of new work which included details of three new Caryl Churchill plays, the Royal Court Theatre announces today a fourth play, Imp,  just received from the celebrated writer.

Glass. Kill. Bluebeard. Imp. will be directed by James Macdonald and will run in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs Wednesday 18 September 2019 – Saturday 12 October 2019.

Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre Vicky Featherstone said;

“As Artistic Director of the Royal Court the precious moment when a play by Caryl Churchill arrives fully formed, breaking new ground and utterly surprising us is what this job is all about.

I thought the delight I felt when she sent Glass, Kill and Bluebeard would be unsurpassed. Imagine then the joy when two weeks ago the wonderful Imp dropped into my inbox. So now we have four new and extraordinary plays by Caryl in our autumn season. Not three.”

Set design by Miriam Buether, costume design by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting design by Jack Knowles and sound design by Christopher Shutt.
