Neville's Island by Tim Firth
directed by Kay Sumpner
Team Building Weekend - words that would strike a chill in the heart of anyone that has ever experienced the horror of such events! But for Neville, Gordon, Angus and Roy it's a reality. These four out-of-condition, middle aged businessmen find themselves in the Lake District and succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked inland! Bound in by fog, menaced by the wildlife and cut off from the world, this perfunctory middle-class exercise turns into a carnival of recrimination, French cricket and sausages. It's a cross between Lord of the Flies and The Office.
What should have been a bonding process turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival. Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, The Flint Street Nativity etc) certainly knows how to write comedy with a dark side and we are sure our audiences will love watching everything fall apart for this intrepid bunch.
