Playreading/ The Skriker by Caryl Churchill

Our playreading sessions are a fun and informal way to study plays. Parts are shared around as the group read the play and then discuss it. New attendees are always welcome.

For this month’s playreading session we will be reading The Skriker by Caryl Churchill.

The play follows the Skriker, ‘a shapeshifter and death portent, ancient and damaged, ‘ in its search for love and revenge as it pursues two young women to London, changing its shape at every new encounter. Along with the Skriker come Rawheadandbloodybones, the Kelpie, the Green Lady, Black Dog and more, till the whole country is swarming with enticing and angry creatures that have burst from the underworld.
