Further than the Furthest Thing Tickets can be a little something too much for you.
Long ago, something significant occurred on the island. Something awful!
The islanders are burdened with a dreadful secret, one they just can't bring themselves to tell their own kids. However, all changes when an unknown caller arrives.

Zinnie Harris' award-winning contemporary classic, Further than the Furthest Thing, is the basis for Jennifer Tang's innovative adaptation, which tells the narrative of a society tormented by its history and under attack from a modern chaotic world on the preserved island of Tristan da Cunha. A show that Jennifer Tang meticulously directed to perfection, set in Southampton, where residents aren't totally at ease with their way of life. Harris's five-character narrative, "Further Than the Furthest Thing," is about how people may love their country even if (or, perhaps, because it is) as far-flung a dot on the planet as Tristan da Cunha.

The Story

On a volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a group of people has been living undisturbed for decades, oblivious to the tornado of development and trade that is occurring all around them. They have been compelled to have a difficult connection with the location that they refer to as home as a result of being shut off from civilized areas and being exposed to the elements. When one of the islanders invites an outsider into the community, the way of life of the people who live there is forever changed. Further than the Furthest Thing tickets are available now!
