Sheila's Island

Details

CANCELLED

The Office meets Lord of the Flies meets Miranda.

Bonfire night 2019 and Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd.’s annual outward bound team-building weekend. Somehow, Marketing Manager Sheila has been nominated team leader, and, using her cryptic crossword solving skills, has unwittingly stranded her team on an island in the Lake District.

As the mobile batteries die, and cold and hunger take over, our intrepid heroines find themselves called on to manufacture escape routes using cable ties and spatulas, and create a rescue flag with plastic plates and a toasting fork.

Is it possible to build an adequate night shelter with a prom dress and a sleeveless jumper?

Can Sheila keep tempers from fraying, nails from breaking and get her band of top level executives safely back to shore?

‘It appears Fay is in some state of undress…she’s sitting in a tree, she’s got an eighteen inch knife and she’s singing the first line from Oklahoma!’

Sheila’s Island, is a sparkling, sharp-witted new comedy from writer Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, The Band); starring Olivier Award winner Sara Crowe (Private Lives, Calendar Girls, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Abigail Thaw (Endeavour).

Presented by the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
