    Far Away, one of only two plays by Caryl Churchill that have been performed in Chile, offers
    an alarming vision of the 21st century, which combines war and ecological disaster. In the
    theatre of this English dramatist, however, the presence of a frightening future operates as
    a warning in order to encourage social change. Using elements of Critical Feminist Theory
    as well as the literary distinction between ‘dystopia’ and ‘anti-utopia’, this article argues
    that –despite certain ambiguities that have been detected by critics– Churchill’s work has not
    abandoned its progressive political ideals.
