Far Away

by Caryl Churchill
March 28-30, 2021

Directed by Marlee Schulman
Faculty Mentor: Matt Moore

In Caryl Churchill’s haunting short play, a young woman must grow up quickly after witnessing a horrifying event in her childhood. In the wake of this trauma, she enters a career as a hat-maker, in which she becomes enmeshed in bizarre, elaborate rituals that have evolved around violent government repression. Provocative and disturbing, Far Away offers an incisive exploration of fear and tyranny in a dystopian — but uncomfortably familiar — world at war.

This performance will be presented live via Zoom. Attendance is free.
