Neville’s Island

Bournemouth Little Theatre

Neville’s Island

By Tim Firth
Directed by Barbara Evans

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.

Tickets: Full price £12, Concessions (Seniors and students) £9, Members £6; Available online.
