by Stef Smith
a Youth Group production
Preceded by The Mildly Unnerving Wig-Maker of West Norwood
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. A group of teenagers' lives intertwine over the course of a single evening as they make their way through the park on a seemingly normal night. Remote is a play about protest, power and protecting yourself.
As part of the National Theatre’s Connections scheme, this show was also performed at the Greenwich Theatre on Saturday 21st March.
