Winner of the 2000 John Whiting Award
On a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic secrets are buried. When the outside world comes calling, intent on manipulation for political and economic reasons, the islanders find their own world blown apart from the inside as well as beyond. FURTHER THAN THE FURTHEST THING is a beautifully drawn story, evoking the sadness and pathos of a civilization in crisis.
Winner of the 2000 John Whiting Award. "Harris winningly produces an intimate and poetic, as well as political, family saga." —Independent (London). "Harris' enthralling adventure of a play marks a departure from stale, well-furrowed theatrical terrain." —Evening Standard (London).
