Abstract

This article discusses three of Caryl Churchill's plays on revolution: The Hospital at the Time of the Revolution (1972), Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (1976) and Mad Forest (1990). It considers the power of revolution as a live, collective process and the ways in which Churchill's plays confront and encode the difficulties of mediation.
