background image Written by Caryl Churchill. Presenting what she sees in the real world. Sexual abuse 
of children. Written and produces in 1979 England. Went on Broadway in 1980. 
Dutchman is from 1964. Really important development between ’64 Broadway and 
’80 Broadway. In particular, Hair. 
What is the setting of Act 1? - Africa, late 1800s. Family is Victorian English, living in colony. Edward played 
by a grown woman. Betty played by a tall, hairy man (in the Broadway 
production). Clive is patriarch. They refer to Africa as the “dark continent”. 
In Act 1, What does Edward secretly steal from his mom to give to Harry Bagley? - Harry Bagley is sexually abusing Edward, the only person who gives him any 
attention or affection. This is what happens when we don’t pay attention to 
our kids. 
Edward only receives love from a transaction from an adult. 
In Act 2, What is Edward’s job? - Edward is lost, doesn’t know his identity. “I think I’m a lesbian” – Edward. He 
is utterly adrift. He is a gardener (that is his job). Act 2 has no patriarchy or 
monarchy or colonialism, however people are suffering under their 
tremendous freedom and attaching themselves to identities they don’t know 
the meaning of (“I’m a lesbian”).
At the end of Act 2, what action occurs between Betty of Act 1 and Betty of Act 2? - They embrace. She feels she is a person separate from her brother and Clive. 
Independent. She cries, she’s not doing a good job, but its closure for Betty. 
Betty tells a story about her first-time masturbating in Act 2 and how it made 
her a part of the world. The play is funny, inviting, but provokes sad emotions
as well.
What is the year and location of Act 2? - London, late 1970s. We age 100 years, while the characters only change 25 
years. Culturally London late 1970s women are rising up.
