Caryl Churchill's "Far Away" tells the story of a world where the only role an artist plays is to decorate the faces of prisoners on their way to public executions.
It is a story about the growth of fear and the role of an artist in a society that no longer functions.
The Set: a highway that no longer functions as such. The society has built a wall in the middle of it to protect themselves from the outside world. The liminal space of the highway becomes a place of residence, but not anyone's home. The wall functions both as the work stations of the artists as well as the platform for the public hangings in ACT II
