There is a girl. She stares out to sea and dreams of a new life beyond her lonely island. Myth and reality collide when the tide washes a mysterious stranger onto her beach.


BritishTheatre gives Islander "★★★★★," calling it "A flawless gem. A modern folk tale that is hard not to fall in love with." Winner of Musical Theatre Review's Best New Musical at Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Islander is intimately staged with a contemporary Scottish folk-inspired score and epic storytelling. "It's a gorgeous production, rich in wit, musicality and transformation" (The Guardian).


Kirsty Findlay (Olivier Award nominated) and Bethany Tennick (The Stage nominee Best Performer in a Musical) create a world of characters while live-mixing and layering their voices, harnessing looping technology to create a dazzling and unexpected soundscape.
