A brilliant and unsettling play from one of the UK's leading dramatists.
At the opening of the play, a young girl is questioning her aunt about having seen her uncle hitting people with an iron bar; by the end, several years later, the whole world is at war - including birds and animals.
Caryl Churchill's play Far Away is a howl of anguish at the increasing - and increasingly accepted - levels of inhumanity in a world seemingly perpetually involved in conflict.
The play was first performed at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, London, in November 2000.
