Appearing in Shipwreck will be Khalid Abdalla (An Injury), Fisayo Akinade (Antony and Cleopatra), Raquel Cassidy (Home), Risteárd Cooper (The Weir), Elliot Cowan (Les Blancs), Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones), Adam James (King Charles III) and Justine Mitchell (Beginning).

The show runs from 12 February to 30 March, and has design by Miriam Buether, costume by Fly Davis, lighting by Jack Knowles, sound by Paul Arditti, video by Luke Halls, voice by Brett Tyne and casting by Amy Ball.
