« Reply #1 on: February 28, 2023, 06:38:12 PM »
Elysium Theatre Company & Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, Hexham present the 50th Anniversary Production of The Island.

The Director is Jake Murray and designed is by Caitlin Mills and Lee Ward.  Ewen Cummins plays John and Daniel Poyser plays Winston.

"South Africa 1973, Robben Island, the top security political prison where Nelson Mandela was held.  John and Winston are sharing a cell. They survive through a mixture of solidarity, laughter and defiance. The two men’s sense of brotherhood has kept them going for years, then John hears that he’s going to be released… The Island is one of the most famous plays of the 20th Century and has been seen all over the world. A rich, boisterous, funny, moving piece of theatre, it is a hymn to the human spirit and a cry for freedom everywhere".

There are dates throughout the UK.  More details are here
