Sheila’s Island

Tim Firth

BONFIRE NIGHT 2019, Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd’s annual outward-bound team- building weekend. Somehow, 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. Our intrepid heroines find themselves manufacturing weapons from cable ties and spatulas and create a rescue flag with plastic plates and a toasting fork. Questions are asked; truths are told; dirty washing is aired. Is it possible to build an adequate night shelter with a prom dress and a sleeveless jumper? What is Julie’s husband really up to in Aldi? And why are they on this bloody team building exercise when they could be at a spa?

This amateur production of “Sheila’s Island” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

Goodnight Mister Tom

David Wood adapted from the novel by Michelle Magorian

GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers. One of the most uplifting stories ever written, Michelle Magorian’s stunning Goodnight Mister Tom is brought to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood– the UK’s ‘National Children’s Dramatist’ (The Times). Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and build a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.
