“…They were killed by heroin, petrol, chainsaws, hairspray, bleach, foxgloves… the smell of smoke was where we were burning the grass that wouldn’t serve.”

In a house far away, a child wakes to the sound of screaming. Who will tell her what’s really going on? And where will the discoveries she makes that night take her in the years to come?

A playwright of genuine audacity and assurance, Caryl Churchill is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost innovators of theatrical language. Far Away is her masterwork, presenting audiences with a profound and unexpected vision of a world sliding into chaos. Arguably her most famous play, Far Away delivers a dazzling satire on the crude but increasingly popular idea that there is a binary divide between virtue and iniquity, between good and evil, and most pertinent to the times we find ourselves in, between an “us” and a “them”.

Featuring an astonishing cast led by acclaimed and award-winning actor Alison Whyte, Far Away marks Patalog Theatre’s highly anticipated return to the Melbourne Independent Stage and fortyfivedownstairs following a series of critical successes; namely Punk Rock (2019) at fortyfivedownstairs and Tusk Tusk (2019) at St Martins Youth Arts Centre.
