By Caryl Churchill

Here it gets tricky: for reasons that continue to baffle me. Churchill's plays are always hard to get, or at least the various editions go in and out of print at an alarming rate.

Churchill, Caryl. Plays One. New York: Routledge, 1985. ISBN: 0415901960.

–––. Top Girls. London: Methuen, 1991. ISBN: 0413644707.

–––. Mad Forest. New York: Theatre Communications Group, 1996. ISBN: 155936114x.

Students have had trouble getting Plays One, Top Girls and Serious Money, but have found some used copies of the first two. You might also look around for Plays 2, Methuen. ISBN 0-413-62270-3, which contains Top Girls and Serious Money.
