Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The newest work by the playwright Tony Kushner calls "the greatest living English playwright." At the beginning of Far Away, we see a girl questioning her aunt after having seen her uncle hitting people with an iron bar. Many years later when the whole world is at war, including the birds and the animals, the girl returns to take refuge with her aunt. A howl of anguish at the increasing levels of inhumanity in a world perpetually involved in conflict.

Review:

"There is an uncommon density and sureness of purpose to Far Away....With each new work, Ms. Churchill seems to come up with new rhythms and language to match, in exhilaratingly theatrical terms, what are scarcely trivial subjects....I can think of no contemporary playwright who combines such scope of imagination and depth of purpose." Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Review:

"[I]ntriguingly unsettling....For many people, even at less than an hour, Ms. Churchill's grim hell on earth vision will seem too long. The images of this all-encompassing war that exempts no animal or human, [are] hard to watch — and even harder to forget." Elyse Sommer, CurtainUp.com

Synopsis:

Newest work by one of Britain's most influential playwrights.
