Set in a world described by The New York Times as “a waking dreamscape…where the promise of violence broods in even the coziest corners,” playwright Caryl Churchill’s Far Away takes us to a place thrown into complete chaos by world war. The play tells the story of Joan (Baize Buzan), a young woman who has grown up in a constant state of fear and paranoia. As a child Joan is sent to live with her aunt Harper (Elizabeth Dowling), and comes of age in a strange world where everything is in constant combat: countries, animals, even forces of nature. Joan spends her formative years working in a hat shop with Todd (Bernie Balbot), with whom she falls in love, only to have their relationship complicated by the onset of total war and confusion.
