About GONE TOO FAR! 

When two estranged brothers from different continents come together for the first time, they decide to go down the street in search of a pint of milk. Suddenly, a seemingly innocent visit to the shops turns into a race-fulled dispute. The brothers bring into view a clearly disconnected nation, in a world where people value individuality, and where respect is not given freely, yet always desired. 

GONE TOO FAR! dances between themes of racial identity, separation and youth culture. Posing the question - whether you’re dark-skinned, light-skinned, Afro or weaves - who are your true brothers and sisters? Witness as brothers of the same blood come together from two different worlds, in a refusal to acknowledge one another's realities in this comical and crafty play on culture, history and identity.
