The Island – Maltings, Berwick

This famous play takes place on Robben Island, South Africa, in 1973 – the top security prison where Nelson Mandela was held.

The Island follows two cellmates, John and Winston, who survive the prison through solidarity, bickering, laughter and defiance. Their sense of brotherhood has kept them going for years, then John hears that he’s going to be released…

Boisterous, funny and poignant, The Island encompasses what it means to be human and is a shout for freedom everywhere.
