Mon 01 Oct - Sat 13 Oct 2012

A child is shut in her room, a dog is dead in the road, someone is kissing her brother in law. A family locked in hatred is sending a son to war.
And meanwhile in another country…

Ding Dong the Wicked is as fresh and unusual as anything she’s written and while it differs from Love and Information in content and form, to see both plays in one night will be an inspiring evening. This is the fourth play of Caryl’s that I’ve directed and I can’t wait”. Dominic Cooke

Caryl Churchill is one of the UK’s most influential playwrights and her association with the Royal Court dates back to 1972 with her play Owners. Her plays at the Royal Court include Seven Jewish Children, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You, Top Girls, This is a Chair, Far Away, A Number, Cloud Nine, Serious Money and this season, “Love and Information”.

Artistic Director of the Royal Court Dominic Cooke directs. His recent credits at the Court include In Basildon, Chicken Soup with Barley, for which he was nominated for an Evening Standard Award, and the multi award-winning production of Clybourne Park for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award. He will also be directing Choir Boy by Tarell Alvin McCraney and In the Republic of Happiness by Martin Crimp this season.

Running time: 30 minutes
