by Caryl Churchill
directed by Andryn Arithson
Why are those prisoners wearing hats shaped like octopi, giraffes and reptiles? Working-class milliner Joan struggles to understand a world in fear, and what side she’s on. Ambiguity haunts the dystopian world of British playwright Caryl Churchill’s Far Away. Though futuristic, the world of Far Away is uneasily evocative of the present, portraying a world in which unspoken horrors take place offstage and even nature is at war with itself. Yet it’s also laced with black humor.
