“I need to keep looking
but I’m not 100% clear on what I’m looking for.”

A girl fights for her life in a lift. New Window.  A protest in Trafalgar Square. New Window. A naked man in a bathtub. New Window. Janelle Monae, dancing.

The possibilities are endless. Even at 2am. That’s the thing about being Extremely Online: there’s no limit on where you can go.

“I love love love my digital body because having a body that can go everywhere is just the hottest thing.”

Directed by Rachel Bagshaw, the production will creatively combine Spoken English, BSL, captioning, audio description and live drumming for every performance. All shows will be performed in a relaxed environment – find out more here.

Eve Leigh’s plays include The Trick (Bush Theatre), Stone Face and Silent Planet (Finborough Theatre). Rachel Bagshaw’s recent work includes Fringe First award-winning The Shape of the Pain, a collaboration with Chris Thorpe. Midnight Movie was developed whilst on a Royal Court residency and with the support of producer Matt Maltby, Unlimited, and Arts Council England. The production will be produced by the Royal Court in collaboration with Matt Maltby.

“Experimental playwright Eve Leigh is becoming an increasingly intriguing voice in UK theatre.” The Stage


Midnight Movie is part of the Royal Court’s Jerwood New Playwrights programme, supported by Jerwood Arts.

Midnight Movie: The Digital Body

Midnight Movie’s digital body is designed particularly to offer anyone whose physical body can’t make it to the show a way to be part of the experience.

By signing up here participants will receive a series of digital letters, a combination of scary story, essay, and audio-visual content, inspired by the play and created by the team behind the show.

The first digital letter will go out during the run of Midnight Movie.

You can sign up here.
