‘What is it about that bloody place?
You, all of you
What the hell is it about all of you?
I let you under my skin
That is what it is
Like thousands of tiny pinpricks’
‘You were the strong one
Is no one ever blaming you,
You did what you had to do
You did what was the right thing.’
It’s the swinging 1960s yet on an island 2000 miles from anywhere life is slow, calm, predictable. Waves lap on the shore, day melts into night, seasons shift and secrets are buried. Yet when their volcano erupts the outside world suddenly comes calling. Greed, corruption and self-reckoning come with it, digging into the foundation of the islanders’ world, pulling it apart.
Bill, Mill, Francis and Rebecca watch as their civilisation plummets into crisis and long-ignored skeletons come to life.
Further the Furthest Thing is a modern day folk tale of capitalism and modernity, landscape and culture.
