Sheila’s Island

May 20 - May 30

A Comedy in Thick Fog

An Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Production.

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? Is there an I in Team? And do endless verses of Kumbaya really keep up spirits?

Questions are asked; truths are told; dirty washing is aired and wet pizza is consumed. Can Sheila keep tempers from fraying, nails from breaking and get her band of top level executives safely back to shore?

What is Julie’s husband really up to in Aldi?

What is it that should be never be mentioned to Fay?

Just how many people can you feed with one sausage?

And what is the mysterious presence lurking in the bushes?

And why are they on this bloody team building exercise when they could be at a spa?

‘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).

 Please note: This production is suitable for ages 13+
