Further than the Furthest Thing Tickets

    When the outside world comes calling, the islanders find their own world turned upside down. This is a beautifully drawn story evoking the beauty and sadness of a civilization in crisis.

    Why Watch Further Than the Furthest Thing

    Further Than the Furthest Thing tickets let you navigate a play that explores themes of colonialism, cultural identity, and relationships. The drama takes place on Tristan da Cunha, an uninhabited island where a small population of people of British heritage has been living in relative seclusion for years. The presence of an outsider shatters the tranquility of island life and compels the locals to question their place in the world and their connection to the country they call home. The play examines how the passage of time has affected the island and its inhabitants, as well as the role that geography and history play in shaping people's sense of who they are as people. It makes us think about what it means to belong, what it means to call a place "home," and how your previous choices affect your relationships now. 'Further Than the Furthest Thing' delves into the difficulties of cultural identity and the aftereffects of colonialism through the stories of its protagonists. The writing of Zinnie Harris and the direction of Jennifer Tang take you to a strange world, where years of isolation have fostered a culture of reserve, simplicity, and directness.
