Neville's Island

by Tim Firth

performed by BTG March 2003

A Comedy In Thick Fog

Four out of condition, middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team-building exercise in the Lake District succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Dewent Water. Bound in by fog, menaced by the wildlife and cut off from the world, this perfunctory middle-class exercise turns in to a carnival of recrimination, French cricket and sausages. What should have been a bonding process for Gordon, Angus, Roy and Neville turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival.
