FURTHER THAN THE FURTHEST THING: a drama based on historical events

An isolated island community with a terrible secret. A stranger arrives, threatening their way of life. A natural disaster catapults them suddenly into the modern world, where Cold War secrets keep them from returning to their home, and two tragic love stories play themselves out against this backdrop of a society in crisis.

Zinnie Harris’ award winning play, directed by Norman McFarlane for the HHDS, tells the tale of five people who come together at the time of the volcanic eruption in 1961, which resulted in the entire community of Tristan da Cunha being evacuated to Southampton.

The show stars newcomer Lee-Ann Murray in the leading role of Mill Lavarello, a strong, self-assured woman who struggles to keep her family and the island community together.

Mill’s quiet strength becomes a source of solace for her husband Bill (played by Bobby Bennett), an island community leader who carries a terrible secret, and who struggles to adjust to life in Southampton.

Mill’s nephew Francis Swain (played by CJ Opperman), is their adoptive son, and it is he who brings the stranger, South African businessman Mr Hansen (played by Deon Fourie) when he returns to the island after a year working in Cape Town, with an idea that threatens the island community’s singular way of life.

And when Francis returns to the island, he must come to terms to with what has happened to his childhood sweetheart Rebecca Glass (played by newcomer Sonette Swanepoel) during his year-long absence.

The director and cast have agreed to give a sneak preview of this absorbing drama, that will take you through the full gamut of human emotions, by staging three scenes from Act One of the show, during the upcoming Member’s Evening on October 10.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see a a show in the making, as the cast and crew prepare for opening night on October 21.
