About this title:
Synopsis:

In the first scene of FAR AWAY, a girl is questioning her aunt about having seen her uncle hitting people with an iron bar. By the end of the play, several years later, the whole world is at war - including birds and animals. The girl has returned to her aunt's and is taking refuge. She describes her journey. "There were piles of bodies and if you stopped to find out there was one killed by coffee or one killed by pins, they were killed by heroin, petrol, chainsaws, hairspray, bleach, foxgloves, the smell of smoke was where we were burning the grass that wouldn't serve..."

FAR AWAY by Caryl Churchill, the author of CLOUD NINE, TOP GIRLS and BLUE HEART, was first staged upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre in London in a production directed by Stephen Daldry. It made it's New York premiere in 2002 at the New York Theatre Workshop, also directed by Daldry.



Product Description:
[handle]

The newest work by the playwright Tony Kushner calls "the greatest living English playwright."

[body]

The newest work by the playwright Tony Kushner calls “the greatest living English playwright.” Far Away is a howl of anguish at the increasing—and increasingly accepted—levels of inhumanity in a world seemingly perpetually involved in conflict, whether in Chechnya or Sierra Leone, Fiji or Zimbabwe. But is it all as Far Away as we would like to think.

Caryl Churchill is the author of some twenty plays, including Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Serious Money, The Skriker and Blue Heart, seen and admired all over the world.


About the Author:
CARYL CHURCHILL's plays include "Cloud Nine" (revived in 2007 to huge acclaim at the Almeida, London), "Top Girls", "Serious Money", "The Skriker", "Blue Heart", "Far Away" and "A Number".
