Far Away

22 printed pages
A brilliant and unsettling play from one of the UK's leading dramatists. Premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2000.
At the opening of the play, a young girl is questioning her aunt about having seen her uncle hitting people with an iron bar; by the end, several years later, the whole world is at war – including birds and animals. Far Away is a howl of anguish at the increasing – and increasingly accepted – levels of inhumanity in a world seemingly perpetually involved in conflict.
'You know you are in the hands of a master' The Sunday Times
'Churchill was expected to produce something explosive, but… she has exceeded the critics' highest expectations' The Observer

Well I have to tell you, when you’ve been married as long as I have. There are things people get up to, it’s natural, it’s nothing bad, that’s just friends of his your uncle was having a little party with.

You mean that ironically?

I mean it sarcastically.

Because they burst out of parks and storm down from mountains and terrorise shopping malls. If the does run away when you shoot they run into somebody else and trample them with their vicious little shining hooves, the fawns get under the feet of shoppers and send them crashing down escalators, the young bucks charge the plate glass windows –

I know to hate deer.
