Caryl Churchill’s dazzling play about a world sliding into chaos, in a new edition published alongside the play’s revival at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in 2020.
Far Away was first performed at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, London, in November 2000.
‘A twisted fairy tale that demonstrates [Churchill’s] matchless gift for merging the apocalyptic and the fantastical… brilliantly absurdist… A sliver of genius’
‘Caryl Churchill was expected to produce something explosive in Far Away, but… she has exceeded the critics’ highest expectations’
‘You know you are in the hands of a master’
