Far Away

By Caryl Churchill

Paperback £7.99£6.39

EPUB £7.99£6.40

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.

SET TEXT: Far Away is a set text for AS/A-Level Drama (WJEC).

Far Away is also available in the collection Caryl Churchill Plays: Four
