Produced by Hatch Theatre Company in association with Project Arts Centre, 20 August – 6 September 2008.

“Something is happened on the island a long time ago. Something bad.”
The islanders carry the burden of a terrible secret.
One they can’t bring themselves to tell their children.
But when a stranger comes calling their world is blown apart forever.

Mixing fact and fiction, Further Than The Furthest Thing is inspired by real life events on the island of Tristan da Cunha and evokes the sadness and brutality of an island community on the cusp of change and a man intent on gaining power and money at any cost.
