Further than the Furthest Thing

"Surprise is as come from the H‘outside world”

On a remote volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic, a community has lived undisturbed for centuries, defying the swirling currents of modernity and capitalism. Cut off and exposed to the elements, their survival has created a complex bind with their land. But when one of the inhabitants brings an outsider to the island, their way of life is changed forever.

Based on real events on the island of Tristan da Cunha, Jennifer Tang’s visionary interpretation of Zinnie Harris’s Award-winning modern classic is a story of a community haunted by its past and under threat from a modern world in crisis.
