Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?
Read my review of Drunk Enough to Say I Love You

Caryl Churchill's play "Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?" is as if an exploration of my dream.
In "Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?" Churchill in a minimalistic form creates two characters Sam as a country and Guy as a man who falls in love with him, to lucidly portray her political view of our time.
