Robert Webb, Adrian Edmondson, Miles Jupp and Neil Morrissey rehearse Neville's Island

Tim Firth's comedy is returning to the West End for the first time in 20 years


Rehearsal photos have been released for the upcoming West End transfer of Tim Firth's comedy Neville's Island.

Leading the cast of Angus Jackson's production are Adrian Edmondson, who is reprising his performance as Gordon from the original run in Chichester, Miles Jupp, Neil Morrissey and Robert Webb.

Last seen in the West End 20 years ago, the play follows the misadventures of four out-of-condition, out-of-their-depth businessmen on an out-of-control 'team building' exercise in the Lake District.

It was originally seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough in 1992, and was subsequently adapted by Firth as a TV movie starring Timothy Spall and Martin Clunes.

Neville's Island runs at the Duke of York's Theatre from 21 October 2014 to 3 January 2015 (previews from 10 October).
