We're sorry, it seems that we do not currently sell tickets for this show. Please go directly to the box office.
A witty, dark drama about three days in the lives of three very different people working as wardens on the remote Farne Islands. Peter is an embittered maverick, a self-styled modern day hermit who is nominally managed by the career-minded Ellen. Their stalemate is upset by the arrival of Nicola, a smart urban woman who seems very out of place on the islands.

The Library Theatre’s Re:Play festival at the Contact Theatre includes Dick Curran’s Islanders, originally premiered at last year’s 24:7. The play follows the relationship between three people who find themselves working on one of the remote Farne Islands
The central figure is Peter (Mark Frampton) a depressing individual who works as a warden. He predicts a dire future for the human race because of climate change. Peter is rude and outspoken to his boss, Ellen (Claire Dean) and we eventually find out why. In terms of character development, his reversal of attitude seems a bit sudden.
Such is Peter’s character, he would, almost certainly, be rude to anyone, even Nicola (Katy Slater), a sushi-munching townie who temporarily joins him and to whom he is obviously attracted.
The cast interact well and the use of film to portray the wild life on the island is well done. It transports you to a deserted world of puffins and sea birds....
