Background


Three More Sleepless Nights by Caryl Churchill was first staged at the Soho Theatre in June 1980.

Synopsis


In each of the play's three short scenes, the repetitive yet widely contrasting patterns of behaviour that often plague long-term relationships are exposed through two different couples as they interact in the most intimate and familiar of environments, the bedroom.


In Margaret and Frank, Churchill presents a ten-year relationship gone sour, as the two engage in a hateful dialogue regarding marital infidelity, deploying her innovative technique of overlapping dialogue.


In Dawn and Pete, an ostensibly contrasting image of bedroom tension is presented, namely a couple who have intense difficulty communicating at all.


Churchill's unsettling and heart-breaking play is a study of human interaction and one that lays bare the lingering fragilities at the heart of relationships.
