Escaped Alone - Luminate Festival

Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Luminate Festival present a rehearsed reading of

Escaped Alone by Caryl Churchill

‘I’m walking down the street and there’s a door in the fence open and inside there are three women I’ve seen before.’

Three old friends and a neighbour. A summer of afternoons in the backyard. Tea and catastrophe.

A script in hand reading directed by Finn den Hertog with a cast including Maureen Beattie, Ann Louise Ross, Anne Kidd and Angela Wynter.

Praise for the play
★★★★★ The Observer
“Caryl Churchill’s magnificent new play unleashes an intricate, elliptical, acutely female view of the apocalypse”
Review taken from original Royal Court run in 2016

Talk Show
Join us for a special FREE Talk Show event after the play where we'll be joined by the cast, acclaimed singer/songwriter Barbara Dickson and our host for the discussion, playwright Linda McLean. A brilliant afternoon of theatre and discussion. Find out more here.
