A geopolitical thriller about desperation, detachment and drones.
Argonaut presents a geopolitical thriller about desperation, detachment and drones.
In a small Nevada town, out-of-work plumber Chris stumbles across Josh, a charity worker exposing the truth behind US drone strikes in Syria and Iraq. Her fascination with his world and determination to win his approval sends her down a path towards desperation, obsession and the darkest of ethical dilemmas.
Action At A Distance is a dark, twisty play about the relationship between the citizen and the nation in which they live, Obama's complicated legacy, and how far we’re willing to bend the rules of moral behaviour to help the ones we love.
'Argonaut is a new writing theatre company set up in 2017 by Rory Horne and Nina Cavaliero. Action at a Distance is their first show and has played sold out performances in London, Edinburgh and Norwich. Argonaut were recently announced as one of the New Diorama Theatre's Emerging Graduate Companies for 2018/19.
