Distance at the Park Theatre is an urgent examination of mental illness, and its impact on the individual, their family, and the society around them.

Steven, recently separated and heading towards divorce, bumps into an old friend on the journey to a job interview. A complex recent past and a fragile present collide, as Steven tries to make sense of the world around him and his place within it. We accelerate headlong into Steven’s chaotic and troubled inner life, as the everyday encounter unravels into something dark, disturbing and unrestrained.

Written by Alex McSweeney and directed by Simon Pittman (Associate Director, Frantic Assembly), the cast of Distance includes Doreene Blackstock, Adam Burton, Richard Corgan, Lindsay Fraser and Abdul Salis. Burton leads as Steven; his stage credits include Jerusalem, All My Sons (Watermill Theatre), My Brilliant Friend (Rose Theatre), The Hairy Ape, The Dutchess Of Malfi (The Old Vic), and Everyman (National Theatre).

Distance was developed as part of the Park Theatre Script Accelerator programme.

Following the acclaimed Out Of The Cage (Park Theatre), Fine Line, Alex McSweeney and Simon Pittman, return with this powerful contemporary story, to bring you a darkly funny, physically dynamic and technically bold portrayal of the mind.
