Directed by Karla Boos and Joe Seamans

She could have written it yesterday and just for America. Far Away is Caryl Churchill’s surreal portrait of a descent into a hyper-partisan future we hope will never come to pass. Joan is staying with her aunt, for reasons that remain mysterious. What’s happening outside in the dead of night? Later, we find her in a factory, creating elaborate hats for a competition that feels like excellent reality TV. But by the end of that section, we’re not surprised to glimpse her dark future where everything, alive and inanimate, is at war: Wasps, computer programmers, children under five…
It’s 45 minutes of shocking theater, turned into an evocative film by the artistry of Joe Seamans and Mark Knobil.

How do I watch on my Smart TV?

Patrons who can access their email via their SmartTV should also be able to click their ticket link and open it in a browser on their TV that way.

Live streaming is relatively new to our industry and the technology to support it continues to develop. Our rights to stream performances come with limitations from the royalty companies to ensure the greatest security. Our current approved streaming platform runs directly through your web browser. It does not yet have an app that allows for casting from your device to a TV.

For this reason we recommend only viewing on a SmartTV IF you are able to access your email directly on your TV to click the ticket link and view via a web browser app on your tv. Tech savvy audience members may be able to find a work around depending on the model of your phone, casting software and device, and Smart TV model. If that’s not you, we recommend viewing the live stream performance on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.  You could use your smart phone also, you just may miss some details given the screen size. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we, and our entire industry, navigates and adapts.
