A film director on an obsessive quest to capture the perfect light.
Throughout rehearsals, online content based on ideas the company are experimenting with will be posted on unreachabletheplay.com, to build a collection of references that will offer audiences an insight into the process of devising work, and the themes and images that will shape the finished production. The first trailer has now been released. This is the first of a series of films created in collaboration with director Michael Hewson. Audiences are encouraged to check the site regularly or sign up to the Royal Court’s mailing list to receive updates.
Unreachable will be accompanied by a post-show conversation with writer and director Anthony Neilson and the cast to take place on 20 July as part of the Big Idea.
