Neville's Island

by

Tim Firth

SYNOPSIS

The story of "Neville's Island"is about four out-of-condition middle-aged businessmen who take part in a Management Team-building exercise in the English Lake District.
Unfortunately, Neville reads a little too much into the clues they have been given and they end up shipwrecked on a small island in the middle of Derwentwater.

There then follows a rollercoaster ride of emotions, with the bonding process between Gordon, Angus, Roy and Neville going seriously wrong as night sets in and they are still stuck on the island, with no food and the belief they are not alone.

Neville's Island is very much a comedy, but many poignant moments and a few very serious ones make for an entertaining and well-rounded play.
