       The UW-Eau Claire department of music and theatre arts will present "Far Away" at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10-14, with matinees at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 14-15, in Riverside Theatre of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
       This futuristic nightmare by Caryl Churchill envisions a world where the promise of violence broods and nothing is to be trusted. It consists of three brief scenes and is directed by Dr. Jennifer Chapman, associate professor of theatre arts.
       In the first scene, a young girl spending her first night in her new guardian's house witnesses a bloody slaughter. Next, the girl, now grown, is spending her first day working in a hat factory. There, she and a young man concoct funny and elaborate hats that are worn for a horrific purpose. In the final scene, the boy and girl, now wed, are seeking refuge from a global conflict.
       Tickets, available at the Service Center, are $14 for the public; $12 for those 62 and older; $10 for those 17 and younger; and $7 for UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students.
