�Caryl Churchill is one of the greatest playwrights we have, and Drunk Enough To Say I Love You? is brilliant, surprising, experimental, political and deep,� said Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis. �Her work combines a fiercely individual artistic voice with a passionate commitment to engaging the wider world and its most vexing issues. I am delighted to welcome her back to her long-time New York home, The Public Theater.�
