Far Gone

By John Rwothomack
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781839040733, 40 pages, February 2022


When Okumu's village in Northern Uganda is attacked by a guerrilla rebel group, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) led by Joseph Kony, he and his brother find that their lives are changed forever.

Far Gone is a profoundly moving play for one actor which tells the story of a young boy's journey from childhood innocence to child soldier, seen through the eyes of those that love him – and those that betray him.


"Intense and atmospheric... the drama grips and carries a spirit of fear and menace... Rwothomack has a powerful story to tell."

- Guardian

"Potent and harrowing... a gut punch of a final twist."

- The Stage

"Profoundly moving."

- British Theatre Guide
