  • With COVID-19 Alert Level 4 kicking in after the first two performances of our August season, we've moved our season to November: Be safe and kia kaha everyone!

A farcical and hilarious evening/afternoon out, directed by Kathy Gent and written by the critically acclaimed Tim Firth - playwright of Calendar Girls.

Four out-of-condition clueless middle managers end up on the outward bound weekend from hell when, against all odds, they collide with and strand themselves on an inland island of England's Lake District.

Shipwrecked, wrapped in thick fog, and cut off from civilisation with recriminations mounting and one cold sausage between them, Gordon, Angus, Roy and the hapless Neville‎ are about to experience the misadventure of their lives…

Wonderfully funny… snappy comic dialogue - Daily Telegraph
