About this show

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.
