Helen Milne Productions presents


Written by Stewart Melton

Directed by Caitlin Skinner

Original soundtrack Composed by Louise McCraw


Escape to the Great Indoors


Three lost souls make a break for freedom and embark on a journey of discovery. But it’s April 2020 and no journey is as simple as A to B - even to the front door.

Distance Remaining follows their extraordinary quests to reconnect with the people in their lives, the places where they live, and the selves they might become.

Boldly blending film, theatre and a transporting electronic score, Distance Remaining is a comic, touching and ultimately uplifting reflection on what is important now.

Starring Karen Dunbar (Chewin’ the Fat and The Karen Dunbar Show), Reuben Joseph (National Theatre of Scotland’s Rapunzel) and Dolina MacLennan (Still Game and 7:84’s The Cheviot, The Stag and The Black Black Oil).

From the producer of hit Scottish musical Islander, Distance Remaining is written by Stewart Melton (BBC Radio 4) with an original soundtrack by Louise McCraw (Goodnight Louisa), directed for the internet by Caitlin Skinner (NTS’s Scenes for Survival).


Supported by Creative Scotland and developed in association with Macrobert Arts Centre.

There are no discounts available for this screening.
