Remote by Orange Tree Theatre Young Company

by Stef Smith
Sold out
Part of NT Connections
A girl called Antler steps out of her front door and throws her phone on the ground. She stamps on it. She then climbs the tallest tree in the park.

She doesn’t want to be found, not by anyone. Seven teenagers’ lives all intertwine over the course of a single evening as they make their way through the park on a seemingly normal Autumn’s night.Remote is a play about protest, power and protecting yourself.

I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…
