Eine ländliche Gegend irgendwo in England steckt in einer wirtschaftlichen Krise und ist Gegenstand einer rigorosen behördlichen Untersuchung. Das Ehepaar Samuel und Judith Covey, geschockt vom plötzlichen Tod ihres Sohnes und verzweifelt wegen der schlechten Ernte, wird zur Zielscheibe des jungen „Foxfinders“ William Bloor, der sich zum Zwecke seiner Ermittlungen bei ihnen einquartiert. Schuld an allem Elend ist der Fuchs, Todfeind der Menschen. Er kontaminiert die Bauernhöfe, beeinflusst das Wetter, manipuliert den Verstand und tötet unschuldige Kinder – für Bloor gibt es daran keinen Zweifel. Die Besessenheit des ominösen Foxfinders destabilisiert das soziale Dorfgefüge und führt schnell zu Misstrauen bis hin zu gegenseitigem Verrat der befreundeten Höfe. Den unschuldigen Samuel treibt es zunehmend in den Wahnsinn... Dawn King verortet ihr Stück, das sich nicht zuletzt auch mit dem Thema Fundamentalismus auseinandersetzt, parabelhaft in einer fiktiven, archaisch anmutenden Welt. 2011 gewann sie mit "Foxfinder" den Papatango New Writing Competition.

A fascinating meditation on human cloning, personal identity and the conflicting claims of nature and nurture. Bernard thought he was an only child. One day he learns the shocking truth: he is just one of a number of clones. Together, he and his father confront epic questions of identity, intimacy and belonging. Caryl Churchill's play A Number pushes the boundaries of science and ethics with an astonishing twist on the dynamics of the father/son relationship. It was originally produced at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2002, winning the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.

Hotel is in two parts. In the first, Eight Rooms, fourteen people - tourists, couples, business people - spend an ordinary night in a hotel. But they all occupy the same space, and their stories overlap and interweave, creating an exhilarating collage of words, voices, music and choreographed movement. In the second part, a dance piece, we see two nights happening at the same time. Two people find different ways to disappear, while a diary found in the hotel room tells of another extraordinary disappearance. With words by Caryl Churchill, music by Orlando Gough and direction/movement by Ian Spink, Hotel was premiered by Second Stride, who have pioneered a unique brand of performed event. This volume contains Churchill's witty libretto, plus articles on the making of Hotel.
