Video Interview: Maxine Peake on The Skriker

Actor Maxine Peake plays the lead role in a revival of Caryl Churchill’s play The Skriker, at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester until 1 August.

In the play she plays a shape-shifter, a malevolent fairy who morphs into an old woman living on the streets, an American debutante and a child desperately seeking a mother figure.

The play begins with an extraordinary monologue in which The Skriker rails against the modern world in an outpouring of inventive wordplay and puns.

Here Maxine Peake explains how she approached this scene.
