Reviews

"A new Caryl Churchill play is an event." - Michael Billington, The Guardian "There's nothing like this play around today." - The Sunday Times "Churchill is our most visionary writer. It may be a decade old, but this is a play that feels more resonant than ever." - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian FOUR STARS: "As rich and disturbing as anything we've seen this century." - Dominic Maxwell, The Times (London) "Deeply disturbing. Far Away has the picturesque form and gentle rhythms of a fairy tale told at bedtime. But it also finds a grating alarm in traditional sounds of comfort, from the lapping of a stream and the lilt of a lullaby to the hesitating confidences exchanged by a boy and girl falling in love. With each new work, Ms. Churchill seems to come up with new rhythms and language to match, in exhilaratingly theatrical terms, what are scarcely trivial subjects, whether it's the rural bleakness and cruelty of Fen (1983) or the capitalist corruption of Serious Money (1987). I can think of no contemporary playwright who combines such scope of imagination and depth of purpose." - Ben Brantley, New York Times "Chilling... Churchill's play seems to reinvent drama with every other line." - Alisa Solomon, Village Voice "A masterpiece from one of the most valuable playwrights working today. Churchill is that rare dramatist who imagines different forms and even invented languages every time out." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune -A new Caryl Churchill play is an event.- - Michael Billington, The Guardian -There's nothing like this play around today.- - The Sunday Times -Churchill is our most visionary writer.
