Adrian Edmondson, Miles Jupp, Neil Morrissey and Robert Webb star in Tim Firth's classic comedy. Read More >

Tim Firth’s classic comedy Neville’s Island follows the misadventures of four out-of-condition, out-of-their-depth businessmen on an out-of-control team-building exercise.

Shipwrecked in the Lake District, menaced by wildlife and with only a sausage between them, the unlikely explorers battle the elements and each other as corporate bonding descends into a hilarious carnival of squabbling, French cricket and cagoules.

Angus Jackson’s critically acclaimed production transfers to the West End in the play’s 20th anniversary year following a successful run at Chichester Festival Theatre.

Neville’s Island stars a quartet of comedy performers; The Young Ones and Bottom star Adrian Edmondson, Peep Show’s Robert Webb (Jeeves And Wooster In Perfect Nonsense, Fat Pig), Rev’s Miles Jupp (People at the National Theatre) and Men Behaving Badly’s Neil Morrissey (Guys And Dolls, Acorn Antiques).

Firth’s other many successful plays include Calendar Girls, The Safari Party, Sign Of The Times and the Olivier Award-winning musical Our House.
