Although Caryl Churchill is known primarily as a playwright, her writing career actually began with radio plays in the early 1960’s, when The Ants was broadcast in 1962. The Ants was followed by other radio plays, including Lovesick (1967), Identical Twins (1968), Abortive (1971), Not, Not, Not, Not, Not Enough Oxygen (1971), Schreber’s Nervous Illness (1972), Henry’s Past (1972), and Perfect Happiness (1973). Churchill has also written several teleplays: The Judge’s Wife (1972), Turkish Delight (1974), The After-Dinner Joke (1978), The Legion Hall Bombing (1978), and Crimes (1981).
