Under the cover of `Light Shining in Buckinghamshire' Caryl Churchill takes the reader through the experience of revolution, encouraging thought and moral criticism from the audience. Her characters are entertaining and each introduces the themes of personal freedom in autocratic and dictatorial societies well. This historically based play does not introduce the audience to the English Civil but to the situation of those that live through and fight for any form of revolution, becoming relevant to modern society as well. Caryl Churchill removes the third wall of the traditional play encouraging the audience not only to view, but also to participate and act within the play itself. Not only thoroughly entertaining but almost haunting in its ability to make you think and analyse the ideas introduced for yourself.
