Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd.’s annual outward bound team-building weekend on Derwentwater. Somehow, Sheila has been nominated team leader, and, using her cryptic crossword solving skills, has unwittingly led her team into the unknown.
As the cold, hunger, and desperation take over, our four intrepid heroines find themselves increasingly isolated. Questions are asked; truths are told; dirty washing is aired and wet pizza is consumed. They are truly up a creek without a paddle.
‘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!’
What is Julie’s husband really up to in Aldi? Just how many people can you feed with one sausage?
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+
