Far Away

By Caryl Churchill

Paperback £7.99£6.39

EPUB £7.99£5.20

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. Far Away is a howl of anguish at the increasing – and increasingly accepted – levels of inhumanity in a world seemingly perpetually involved in conflict.

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

Also available in Caryl Churchill Plays: Four
