New York Theatre Workshop has postponed the production of Caryl Churchill's Far Away until next season, according to NYTW representatives. The play, to be helmed by Stephen Daldry (Via Dolorosa, "Billy Elliot"), was rescheduled owing to the director's filming schedule.

Caryl Churchill's anti-utopian look at the future as shown through a girl's visit to her auntie's house played London's Royal Court Theatre in 2000. The play was originally announced to run February-March 2002 but will now likely play in the Fall.

Daldry made a name for himself as a director at London's Royal Court Theatre and on Broadway with An Inspector Calls and Via Dolorosa. then went on to direct films. His feature film debut was "Billy Elliot." He is currently working on "The Hours" starring Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Allison Janney, Ed Harris, Claire Danes, Toni Collette and Eileen Atkins.

No replacement has been announced as of yet, but some plays that are "in the works" are Paul Rudnick's Valhalla and an adaptation of Michael Cunningham's novel, "Flesh and Blood." (Incidentally Cunningham wrote the novel "The Hours," adapted for the screen by David Hare.)
