Starring Judy Flynn as Sheila and Sara Crowe as Fay, with more star casting to be announced, Sheila’s Island is a sparkling new version of Tim Firth’s sharp-witted comedy Neville’s Island, to be directed by Joanna Read.

Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd.’s annual outward bound team-building weekend on Derwentwater. They have an ordnance survey map, a compass and a list of clues. What could possibly go wrong?

Tim Firth is the writer of multiple award-winning films, stage and TV productions, including Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, The Band, Our House, The Girls and All Quiet on the Preston Front. He previously worked with Joanna on The Corstorphine Road Nativity at The Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

The instantly recognisable Judy Flynn is best known for her appearances in some of TVs best-loved dramas and comedies, including Dinnerladies, Call the Midwife and Shameless. Judy’s theatre credits include Chicken Soup, East is East, Emil & the Detectives, and A Day in the Death of Joe Egg.

Sara Crowe is an Olivier Award-winner known for her numerous film, TV and stage performances, including Private Lives, Calendar Girls and Acorn Antiques: The Musical, as well as the role of Laura in Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Joanna Read joined the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in January 2019 as Director and Chief Executive. She was previously Artistic Director of Salisbury Playhouse. The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre opened its doors in 1965 and built an impressive reputation as a producer of significant work much of which transferred to the West End and toured nationally. This new tour is at the forefront of Joanna Read’s commitment to re-establishing the theatre as a maker of great productions for Guildford, and beyond.

Please note: This production is suitable for ages 13+
