If Kafka, Orwell and Dr. Seuss had collaborated on creating an alternate universe, the resulting world might look like the dystopia explored in Caryl Churchill's Far Away. Like all great dystopias, the power of Far Away is that this whimsically nightmarish universe is -- despite its violent eccentricities -- not very "far away" from our own. Follow the story of Joan as she comes of age during an all-consuming war waged on the grandest of scales. A sinister farm house, a beautiful parade and a nation overtaken by animals play a part in her ever changing life. But is she changing the world ... or is the world changing her? California Repertory Company (Cal Rep) presents this ravishing, deeply disturbing masterwork from "one of theatre's most innovative and provocative dramatists" (The Guardian) at California State University Long Beach's University Theatre.

Event Description:

Far Away
By Caryl Churchill

Directed By Trevor Biship

A young girl witnesses a horrible event – or is it an act of revolution? In a series of three scenes, Joan grows up, discovering and acting against a violent world that is evolving around her.
