Well, it’s been a long time since deciding to do this wonderful play, but all of us at Couch Theatre are so proud and happy to finally present to you the English-language German premiere of the staged reading of Zinnie Harris’s Further Than The Furthest Thing, tonight and tomorrow at Sprechwerk Theatre in Hamburg. Come with us to this magical island and listen to the inhabitants speak of things like Pinnawin H’eggs, H’England tea and The Patches and about the “H’outside warld” as if they were telling a fairy tale. But there are secrets buried on this island. And when the islanders find their world blown apart from within as well as from outside, who knows how long these secrets can remain buried.
Zinnie Harris has dedicated her multi award-winning play to the Island of Tristan da Cunha, on which it is loosely based.
When: 6th and 7th March 2020 at 8p.m.
Where: Sprechwerk Theatre, Klaus-Groth-Str. 23, Hamburg, which is a short walk from the train station Berliner Tor.
Tickets: http://www.sprechwerk.hamburg or at the theatre box office.
The play was first commissioned by Tron Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland and premiered by the Tron in a co-production with the Royal National Theatre (UK) at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Festival.
