CORCADORCA THEATRE COMPANY PRESENT

FAR AWAY

ON SPIKE ISLAND

From June 19th to July 1st, excluding Sundays (Previews June 16th and 17th)

Corcadorca Theatre Company, pioneers of site-specific productions, are coming to Spike Island in Cork Habour this summer with a production of  “Far Away” by Caryl Churchill, as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival. This unique event begins as you board the ferry at Kennedy Pier, Cobh, to journey to the island for a promenade performance of Churchill’s acclaimed anti-war play. 

“Far Away” is set around a hat factory in a chaotic world at war with itself. Written in the year 2000, it still reflects the current political landscape and offers a perspective on the cost of turning a blind eye. The production will see Corcadorca deploy their largest ever community cast who will be key to creating an aesthetic centrepiece for the show.


Ticket update:

Tickets were snapped up in record time when they went on sale a few weeks ago with many folk disappointed to have missed out.  

Due to phenomenal demand, Corcadorca has now teamed up with Cork Sea Safari in order to allow more audience get to Spike Island to see the show.  

Tickets are €35 and include transport to and from Spike Island by RIB (high speed powerboat) from Cobh. Available across all dates from 19th June to 1st July, exc Sunday.
