Featured in Lyn Gardners Top Tickets, REMOTE is now in it’s final week at Camden People’s Theatre, the reviews are in and audiences have had their say. Here’s a run-down of who’s saying what – take a look…

What the critics have said:

★★★★ “Remote is clever and intriguing – interactive fiction exploring small politics, big algorithms and thwarted consensus” The Stage

★★★★ “Choose your own adventure… this is immersive theatre, but not as you know it… here the entire audience make decisions that will shape the play’s narrative.” Time Out

“…theatre like this is important, in fact crucial, in reminding us that our vote can count… It is pertinent and playful; watch it if you want to be engaged.” The Upcoming

“Coney highlight the politics of choice, the limits of free will and the feeling of being implicated in everything that happens…this kind of theatre highlights liveness.” A Younger Theatre
What audiences have said:

“A ‘group of people imagining the future’, ‘exploring democratic limitation’ and ‘thinking about individual choice [and] crowd mentality’ with ‘room to imagine’.”

“Exciting, thought-provoking and unusual”

“Responsive, social and lovely”

And on Twitter:
