Neville’s Island cast and tickets for revival at Theatre Royal Hornchurch

A revival of Tim Firth’s play Neville’s Island will open at Theatre Royal Hornchurch in May.

The comedy piece follows four middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team-building exercise in the Lake District only to end up becoming the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Derwentwater.

Performances begin at Theatre Royal Hornchurch on 20 May and run to 3 July 2021 with tickets on sale here priced from £12.50.

The cast will feature Beruce Khan (Shadowlands), Philip Cairns (Cyrano De Bergerac), Sean Michael Verey (Pramface) and Stephen Leask (School of Rock).

Emma Baggot directs with set and costume design by James Button, sound design by Alexandra Faye Braithwaite, lighting design by Stephen Pemble and fight direction by Haruka Kuroda.

A full synopsis shares: “Four out-of-condition clueless middle managers are forced on the outdoor awayday from hell.

“Shipwrecked, wrapped in thick fog and cut off from civilisation with one cold sausage between them, Gordon, Angus, Roy and the hapless Neville‎ are about to experience the misadventure of their lives…

“From the critically acclaimed Tim Firth, writer of Calendar Girls, The Band and Our House. This fresh new production of an award nominated West End comedy, is the perfect entertainment to welcome you safely back to live theatre, on your doorstep this summer.”
