far away by caryl churchill

Tod - Benedict Cumberbatch
Harper - Deborah Findlay
Joan - Hattie Morohan

Directed by Martin Crimp downstairs at the Royal Court again.

One of Caryl's wonderfully odd one.......in fact absurd is probably the word but seeing Benedict talk of animals dominating the country I couldn't help make the obvious connection to Rhinoceros. Wonderfully performed and directed by all. Very funny and entertaining. I wonder which demographic groups Caryl would have satirised in this decade?
