The Office meets Lord of the Flies meets Miranda.
Sheila’s Islandis 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), and Judy Flynn (The Brittas Empire, Dinnerladies).
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?
