1961. 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 ends, the islanders find their world blown apart from the inside as well as beyond. Eighteen months later, England. The islanders struggle to make sense of an unfamiliar world. Mixing fact and fiction, Further than the Furthest Thing is inspired by events on Tristan da Cunha and evokes the sadness and beauty of a civilisation in crisis. It won the 1999 Peggy Ramsay Award which included a gift of £35,000. Zinnie Harris' Further Than the Furthest Thing will transfer from Glasgow's Tron to the National Theatre to form part of the London venue's Springboards season dedicated to new writers. Performers Arlene Cockburn, Paola Dionisotti, Darrell D'Silva, Gary McInnes, Kevin McMonagle.
