The four Caryll Churchill plays at the Royal Court

A fourth new Caryl Churchill play is to run at the Royal Court, it has been announced.

Imp will be added to the already announced line-up of Glass, Kill and Bluebeard, which are all directed by James Macdonald. The four plays will run at the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs from 18 September to 12 October.

Vicky Featherstone, artistic director of the Royal Court, said: "I thought the delight I felt when she sent Glass, Kill and Bluebeard would be unsurpassed. Imagine then the joy when two weeks ago the wonderful Imp dropped into my inbox. So now we have four new and extraordinary plays by Caryl in our autumn season. Not three."

Set designs for the show are from Miriam Buether, costume by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting by Jack Knowles and sound by Christopher Shutt.
