In December of 1989, the people of Romania violently overturned the rule of Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Three months later, British playwright Caryl Churchill went to Bucharest with a group of acting students to see first-hand a society still groping its way forward through the chaotic aftermath of revolution. Out of this experience came Mad Forest, Churchill's kaleidoscopic portrait of this extraordinary chapter in world history. Combining a fictional storyline with actual eyewitness accounts of the revolution, Churchill paints a world in which sudden freedom is both intoxicating and terrifying.
