Sheila’s Island by Tim Firth, Directed by Mike Davies, Written by Tim Frith (Calendar Girls).

Sheila’s Island is about 4 women suffering the kind of hellish bonding experience some companies used to enjoy inflicting on their employees. They are on some kind of treasure hunt in the Lake District. As the play opens all four crawl onto the stage/island soaking wet because their boat has sunk due to Sheila not realising boats do not steer like cars. What follows is not pretty as cold, hunger and Denise’s sharp tongue affects all of them. Will they be rescued? Only one mobile phone survived and Julie chose to phone her husband who was not at home! Here are 4 excellent parts for women who are up for being wet, bedraggled and muddy.


Sheila: Elected group leader but not a natural. She is optimistic and practical and tries to mediate between the others.

Denise: Furious at losing an expensive rucksack and her belongings. Sharp witted, sarcastic and aggressive particularly towards Julie. She has some of the best lines.

Julie: One of those annoying people who talks in platitudes. Has a big rucksack full of equipment no one needs. She is not sharp and shrivels easily but she and Denise end up in a fight.

Fay: Quite different from the other women, works in finance. Quieter, almost in a world of her own. Loves birds and has strong religious beliefs. Has had some kind of breakdown and nearly loses it again on the island.
