⭐ SHEILA’S ISLAND – WORLD PREMIERE – UK TOUR ANNOUNCED ⭐
Casting has been announced for the UK tour of the gender-swapped, world premiere production of Sheila’s Island.
Olivier Award winner Sara Crowe (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Eastern Eye Award winner Rina Fatania (Dead Dog in a Suitcase), Judy Flynn (Dinnerladies), and Abigail Thaw (Endeavour) have been cast in Yvonne Arnaud’s production of Sheila’s Island by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, The Band). This sparkling, sharp-witted new comedy is akin to The Office meets Lord of the Flies meets Miranda.
Rooted in the everyday lives of four women finding themselves truly out of their comfort zones, Sheila’s Island examines what lies beneath the superficiality of office relationships. With vulnerability, viciousness, painful honesty and great wit, we can all (female or male) see some of ourselves in Sheila, Denise, Fay and Julie.
Sheila’s Island is a sparkling new version of Tim Firth’s sharp-witted and highly acclaimed comedy Neville’s Island. It will be directed by Yvonne Arnaud Theatre’s director and chief executive Joanna Read.
Featuring set & costume design by Liz Cooke, lighting design by Paul Anderson, composer & sound design by Jon Nicholls and produced by the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford.
Sheila’s Island will premiere at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Guildford, playing from 10th – 19th February 2022, before touring nationally.
