Quick Overview

A brilliant text choice for exam performances (a cast of 4 - male of female). We love this play!

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.

Poltergeist Theatre’s much-hyped, and Samuel French new play award-winning, Lights Over Tesco Car Park charts how the cast (the researchers) got in touch with a guy called Robert – who apparently saw an alien, or at least a red light in the sky that split into four, while walking past a Tesco one evening. Intertwined with tales of other historical abduction accounts, this ensemble piece jumps back and forth between different narrative paths – looking, in their own offbeat and charming way, at the power and importance of belief.

It's an inventive play that uses a mixture of storytelling, acting mixed with image projection, recorded phone calls and re-enacted events. All sorts of props are picked up from the sides, with instances of audience interaction. It would be a great experimental and physical piece for a GCSE drama performance.
