SPOOKY ACTION AT A DISTANCE is about an anti-immigration protest in Dover in 2015. It’s about throwing a brick to make a point, how it feels to look at pictures of bad things on the internet, and how snotty your National Front bandana gets when it’s tied across your face in the cold.
The play, by Eve Leigh, was commissioned by the Royal Court Theatre for the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. It was performed as part of the NEW:2017 Season in the Richard Burton Theatre in Cardiff and at the Gate Theatre in London. The cast, creatives and production team were graduating students from RWCMD.
