    Far Away

    Presented by at Charlestown Working Theater

    April 3 - April 19, 2014


    Far Away

    In Caryl Churchill's chilling drama, young Joan wakes in the night while staying with her aunt and uncle in the country and sees the stuff of nightmares. Or does she? How much does she really understand of what she sees? Years later, Joan is a fighter in a resistance movement - where the whole world is at war with itself. The cats have come in on the side of the French and the Bolivians have weaponized gravity. Permeated with paranoia and fear, Far Away shows us a funhouse mirror reflection of our world, a dystopian society where unspeakable horrors take place just offstage and the moral compass is shattered. By turns lyrical and prosaic, terrifying and shot through with a dark glinting humor, this fable of a society (and a planet) turning on itself is the work master playwright and political thinker at her best.
