Studio 3: Far Away
The UMBC Department of Theatre is proud to present Far Away by Caryl Churchill, directed by theatre students Abigail Funk and Leah White.
This hour long futuristic nightmare envisions a world where the promise of violence broods and nothing is to be trusted. Written by the celebrated author of Top Girls and Cloud Nine, this innovative work consists of three brief scenes. In the first, a young girl spending her first night in her new guardian’s house witnesses a bloody slaughter. Next, the girl, now grown, is spending her first day working in a hat factory. There, she and a young man concoct funny and elaborate hats that are to be worn for a horrific purpose. In the final scene, the boy and girl, now wed, are seeking refuge from a global conflict where even the animals are on one side or another.
Far Away is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
