Two funny and disturbing short plays by Caryl Churchill. Heart’s Desire: a family await the return of their daughter from Australia, but the plot keeps diverging in surreal ways. Blue Kettle: a con-man attempts to persuade several different women that he is their long-lost biological son, but is thwarted by a verbal virus that seeps into the play. Dark humour delivered through precise ensemble acting from drama students studying at the Bathway Theatre, University of Greenwich. A pacy and entertaining theatrical treat exploring the savagery and fragility of family life.
