News - Unreachable


Have a look at the first in a series of short films exploring the world of Anthony Neilson's Unreachable, an innovative new play starring, amongst others, Matt Smith and coming to the Royal Court Theatre this summer...

A film director on an obsessive quest to capture the perfect light.

Writer and director Anthony Neilson returns to the Royal Court with a new play that will be created in the rehearsal room. The cast for Anthony Neilson’s new play Unreachable will include Amanda Drew, Tamara Lawrance, Jonjo O’Neill, Richard Pyros and Matt Smith.

Throughout rehearsals, online content based on ideas the company are experimenting with will be posted on the play's website, 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.

Rehearsals start on 16 May the production runs from 2 July 2016 to 6 August 2016 in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs.
