By Samuel Bailey
Directed by Helena Middleton
Claire has been away. A lot. When tragedy hits The Island, she's called back home to sort out the mess. As the elected Member of Parliament it's kind of her job. Dropped into a maelstrom of unpredictable characters and Island life she must navigate her way through it, or end up being swallowed by the seas that are quickly creeping their way up The Island's shores.
Islanders is a play about politics and principles, where we come from and where we want to be.
Samuel Bailey grew up in the Midlands and has been living and working in Bristol since 2013, after being one of five writers to win the inaugural Open Sessions at Bristol Old Vic. He has worked closely with the Young Company since then as a performer, dramaturg & assistant director, and was short-listed for the Old Vic's prestigious T S Eliot commissions in 2014. This is his first play for Theatre West.
This production is part of Theatre West's season of plays all kick-started by the notion of Moving On and will be preceded by a ten minute play:
3 - 7 Nov Barred by Hugh McCann
10 - 14 Nov Bridge by Richard Bradbury
