Perhaps the 'at' command may help here?

  at [identifier][#|*|%] command [args ... ]

        Execute a command at other displays  or  windows  as  if  it  had
        been entered there.  "At" changes the context (the `current window'
        or `current display' setting) of the command. If the first parameter
        describes a  non-unique  context, the command will be executed
        multiple times.  If the first parameter is of the form
        `identifier*'  then identifier is matched against user names.  The
        command is executed once for each display of the selected user(s).
        If the first parameter  is  of  the form `identifier%'  identifier
        is matched  against  displays. Displays are named after the ttys
        they attach. The prefix `/dev/' or `/dev/tty' may be omitted  from
        the identifier.

This talks a lot about a 'display', it actually means terminal...
I'd be interrested to hear, if this arcane screen command still work

        and a happy new year,
