About Further than the Furthest Thing

What happens when a remote volcanic island is forced into the modern world? Discover the power of community.

With an island so small, and an even smaller community to boot, how does anyone know what happened on Tristan da Cunha? It’s easy for playwright Zinnie Harris to find inspiration: her mother lived on the archipelago. The Further than the Furthest Thing play impressed leading bodies, winning an Edinburgh Fringe First award.

Two decades later, Jennifer Tang directs the hauntingly beautiful story, with London Theatre praising “the contemporary classic of sorts, not least for its compelling strangeness… it’s a prime case of elliptical beauty.”

Residents of Tristan da Cunha live a calm life. For centuries, they’ve lived a quiet, calm existence, rejecting modern developments in favour of keeping up with their own way of living. But in 1961, their survival is threatened after a local brings an outsider to the island. For the first time, sparks fly when the outside world and Tristan da Cunha come together.

More information about Further than the Furthest Thing

Outsiders weren't the only worry for the community. On 8 Oct. 1961, a large earthquake and landslide saw all 264 islanders and 31 expats sent to Southampton for their safety. As the play develops, you’ll see how lifechanging decisions rock their collective world.

The isolated island boasts a 300-strong population. It doesn’t show signs of increasing: you can only move there if you have a family connection to the island. For now, you can only visit Tristan da Cunha by seeing Further than the Furthest Thing in London.

What to Watch For:

  • Jenna Russell plays Mill Laverello. The Olivier-winning actress previously starred in the UK premiere of Fun Home at the Young Vic.
  • Tristan da Cunha is a small island in the South Atlantic Ocean. The only way to visit the island is a six-day trip from South Africa.
  • Did you know they also speak their own dialect. It’s close to British English, but they stress certain sounds differently, notably “H’Outside” instead of “Outside.”
