Unreachable starring Matt Smith at the Royal Court Theatre

Renowned for his pioneering, ground-breaking and imaginative new work, writer and director Anthony Neilson returns to the Royal Court with a new play that will be created in the rehearsal room.

Throughout rehearsals, online content based on ideas the company are experimenting with, will be posted every few days on unreachabletheplay.com, gradually building 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.

Unreachable runs from 21 July 2016 until 6 August 2016 at the Royal Court Theatre.


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


Starring Dr Who’s Matt Smith, Jonjo O’Neil, Amanda Drew, Tamara Lawrence, Richard Pyros, and Genevieve Barr.


★★★★ “Intoxicatingly chaotic comedy.” Time Out | Andrzej Lukowski
★★★★ “Packed with cracking one-liners and bursts of outrageous slapstick.” Evening Standard | Henry Hitchings
★★★★ “Intelligent and witty about art and ego, beauty and elusiveness.” The Stage | Natasha Tripney
★★★★ ” Neilson keeps a tight rein on the action and emerges as both a hilarious satirical portrait of the challenges of film-making and a metaphorical journey about obsession.” Mark Shenton
