Four city-dwelling business men set out on a team-building weekend only to become trapped on an island in the wilds of Tasmania. Team leader Neville tries to stay positive; acerbic manager Gordon turns on his companions; Roy finds comfort in his recent religious epiphany; while Angus… well, Angus has brought the latest equipment but doesn’t have a clue what to do with it. As day turns to cold, cold night, the men discover hidden vulnerabilities and unexpected strengths as they battle the elements and each other.
Tim Firth’s wicked comedy is a masterful look at men trying to make the best of a bad situation while they remain, unfortunately… men.
“Other people’s misery is one of the great comic pleasures of the theatre… Neville’s Island is still proving deliciously dark and funny”.
The Telegraph, UK
“The laughs come thick and fast… highly enjoyable”.
