Description: “People aren’t evil and people aren’t good. They live how they can one day at a time. They come out of dust they go back to dust, dusty feet, no wings, and whose fault is that?” — Caryl Churchill.

In a companion work to her Obie-winning 1982 play TOP GIRLS, Caryl Churchill penned FEN, an unforgettable mosaic of the lives of England’s “bottom girls” — landless tenant farmers, whose longing for release from the dirt and toil of agrarian life is supplanted by the brutal struggle for survival in the Fenlands. Drawing on interviews of inhabitants of the Fens and digging deep into the lore of its grit, Churchill brings us a parable for our times, where multinational corporations rape and reap the rewards of the land, while workers stay bound to the soil.
