About Us

What is 'The Remote Read' series?

 An exclusive series of virtual play readings, utilising online video technology - a groundbreaking project to produce live virtual theatre performances, which will raise money for charities nominated by the performers as well as for creatives forced out of work by COVID-19.

Why We're Doing This?

 At a time when the whole world is consuming content, yet studios and theatres across the globe have shut down, we wanted to get talented creatives and technicians working together again. Our community is passionate about collaborating on creative projects, and The Remote Read is going to help them do just that.

Who's Involved?

CurtainCall, along with UK co-producers Platform Presents and US co-producers Apples & Oranges have teamed up to bring great writing together with new technology

THE PLAY

    A Separate Peace (1964), by Tom Stoppard is an enigmatic comedy set in a private nursing home. The smooth running of the home and the peace of mind of its staff is disrupted by the arrival of a patient, John Brown. He is warm, charming and can easily pay for his room ... the only problem is that he is perfectly healthy. All he wants is to get away from the outside world. The play follows the desperate, often comic, attempts of the nursing staff to crack the riddle of Brown’s disarming honesty. However, behind the humour, Stoppard poses a key question about the way our society works: why do we feel so uncomfortable about people who want to do nothing – even when they can afford it?
