Experience the “consummate local production of 2020-21, on screen or in person” with a free encore streaming of Far Away until February 6 in honor of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s recognition of the “daring” online production by Caryl Churchill.
Far Away is Caryl Churchill’s surreal portrait of a descent into a hyper-partisan future we hope will never come to pass. We follow a young woman through mysterious nocturnal activity to unbelievable hat construction and right into a 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.
This performance has passed.
