This is a black comedy about four out-of-condition, middle managers on a team building initiative in the Lake District, who succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on Derwentwater. Bound in by fog, menaced by wildlife and cut off from the world, this perfunctory middle-class exercise turns into a carnival of recrimination, French cricket and sausages.
A successful film was made of the play, starring Timothy Spall and Martin Clunes.
Neville’s Island is being staged at Bournemouth Little Theatre from 6 – 10 June 2023 at 7:45pm each evening.

Written by Tim Firth
Based on Film by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth
Directed by Lyn Lockyer
When Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an ‘alternative’ calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
New Forest Players are proud to be supporting Oakhaven Hospice with their production of Calendar Girls and hope that you will consider dropping a few coins (or notes), along with a smile, in their collecting buckets.
Tickets: £13 (NFP Members £8); Available via phone 01425 542414 or online.
