“The greatest living English playwright and, in my opinion, the most important English-language playwright since Williams.” – Tony Kushner
“Having dealt in the past with the politics of sex, Churchill puts the sexuality of politics center stage.” –Guardian
“Her play is a phenomenon: a very topical manifestation of mistrust, anxiety, and, yes, anger.” – Times (London)
“A smolderingly droll and deadly allegorical conceit… wickedly witty.” – Independent
“No other writer can achieve what Churchill now does, which is to convey a universe of feeling in a minimal, stripped-back artistry. Though completely dissimilar to Beckett and Pinter, she is surely now in their class.” – WHATSONSTAGE.COM
Jack would do anything for Sam. Sam would do anything. And around this simple premise, Caryl Churchill slyly crafts her new play depicting a deeply dysfunctional gay relationship—which is actually all about America. Drunk Enough to Say I Love You? is another speedy, taut two-hander that shows off Churchill’s uncanny ability to write both topically and elliptically at the same time. It was first produced at London’s Royal Court Theatre and subsequently staged at The Public Theater in New York.
Caryl Churchill has written for the stage, television and radio. A renowned and prolific playwright, her plays include Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Far Away, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?, Bliss, Love and Information, Mad Forest and A Number. In 2002, she received the Obie Lifetime Achievement Award and 2010, she was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.
