Caryl Churchill’s ‘Far Away’ has proven almost visionary in its surmise of the events of the past decade. Written in 1999, the play takes us with Joan on her journey from questioning youth into the overwhelming apathy of adulthood, in a world where all of nature is at war.
Described overwhelmingly as “chilling”, “ravishing” and “prophetic”, twelve years after its premiere the play remains as relevant now in our own Australian “far away” as ever before.
