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, and in a new edition published alongside the Donmar Warehouse revival in 2020.

Press Quotes

'A twisted fairy tale that demonstrates [Churchill's] matchless gift for merging the apocalyptic and the fantastical... brilliantly absurdist... A sliver of genius'

Independent

'Caryl Churchill was expected to produce something explosive in Far Away, but... she has exceeded the critics' highest expectations'

Observer

'You know you are in the hands of a master'
