Fen by Caryl Churchill( Book )
11 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 454 libraries worldwide
First performed in 1983 at the University of Essex Theatre, 'Fen' is a flinty, eerie play, haunted by the ghosts of starving field workers and claustrophobic in its condemnation of agrarian and social exploitation. Against the flat, bleak landscape of the Fenlands, men and women are cramped into bitterness by grinding labour and economic oppression. The play is composed of brief, fiercely resonant scenes, carving with powerful humanity the desolate lives of the village's men and women
Light shining in Buckinghamshire by Caryl Churchill( Book )

'Light Shining in Buckinghamshire' depicts the Diggers and Ranters during the English Civil War, and their last desperate burst of revolutionary feeling before the Restoration. It deals in the rawness of life during the Civil War and the crazy mixture of ideals and half-truths which led a group of free-loving pantheistic communists to set their standard against the standard of the false revolution of Cromwell's parliamentarians

This is a chair by Caryl Churchill( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 369 libraries worldwide
<Div> A series of surreal sketches, each prefaced by a doom-laden tabloid style headline, <I>This Is A Chair</I> is at once modern and postmodern, tragedy and farce, about all and about nothing. 'Churchill, who constantly reinvents dramatic form, has come up with something compelling and strange: an intimate revue about the increasing surreality of modern life' - <I>Guardian</I> 'creates a haunting impression of urban alienation, self-obsession and pre-millennial tension' - <I>Daily Telegraph</I> </div>
Traps by Caryl Churchill( Book )
12 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and German and held by 351 libraries worldwide
First produced at the Royal Court Theatre in 1977 the play is set among a group of communards in their 20s and 30s; the only clear relationships are that 'Jack is Christie's younger brother, and Reg is her husband.' The constantly changing status of time, place, and character permit Churchill to examine the frailty of an individual life with no perceptible direction. She also undermines the self-perception of the characters as wounded or victimized by themselves, each other, or the world outside; motivation and chronology can turn on a dime, no matter the utopian intention of the community itself
