Further Than the Furthest Thing | Minack Theatre


On a remote island in the middle of the South Atlantic tremors disturb the surface of the volcanic lake, but the small population are more concerned with matters above ground. An outsider wants to build a factory that he says will bring work and prosperity to the whole community. However, not everyone agrees and some question his real motives? Behind this other, darker secrets lie concealed, waiting to erupt and blow the community and their way of life apart.

Further Than the Furthest Thing was inspired by the true story of the evacuation of Tristan da Cuhna. Loosely based on true life events, Zinnie Harris’s sensitive portrait of a community in crisis gives voice to all that is lost when two countrymen can no longer talk to each other without first making an appointment.
