The St. Louis Professional Premieres of
FAR AWAY and ESCAPED ALONE
by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Robert Neblett
March 14-31, 2019
501 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63103
Inevitable Theatre Company proudly presents this chilling duo of dystopian dramas by England's leading playwright, whose other works include Top Girls, Cloud Nine, Mad Forest, A Number, The Skriker, and Love and Information.
Far Away begins with a child's innocent questions about an act of unspeakable violence she has casually witnessed in the night, and ends with a daring escape to freedom in a world of war where even the forces of nature have taken sides.
Churchill's most recent play, Escaped Alone, alternates between a series of harmless backyard conversations shared by a group of suburban neighbors and an eerie suite of nightmarish prophecies that foretell of an Orwellian hellscape to come. This production will feature a peerless quartet of St. Louis's esteemed grandes dames of the theatre.
These two all-too-timely dramas will be presented in a rotating repertory, with special weekend "marathon" performance packages so that you can see both in a single day, accompanied by a meal at the theatre.
