Lights Over Tesco Car Park

Livestream - on demand



Basically, Robert reported lights over the Tesco car park. Then he told us an alien was coming to stay in his spare room. With the help of some historical abduction stories, a latex alien mask, and a bucket of flying saucers, we’re working out whether to believe him. Maybe this is a good place to believe him?

Maybe you can help?

The Poltergeist team will be live-tweeting along with performance stories, anecdotes from rehearsal, and peeks into the process with the hashtag #LightsOverLockdown. Feel free to join in - you can find them on @PoltergeistTC
