After a limited engagement at Southwark Playhouse, Islander has now been adapted into a radio play. The new adaptation will be premiered on BBC Radio Four at 2:15pm, this Friday 22 January.

Performed by two women, Islander follows Eilidh as she dreams of a new life beyond the small Celtic island where she currently resides. Meeting a stranger on the beach, her life is changed forever.

Islander features a book by Stewart Melton, with music and lyrics by Finn Anderson. Best known for her Olivier Award-nominated performance in Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, Kirsty Findlay stars, alongside Bethany Tennick.

First touring Scotland in summer 2018, Islander ran for a month at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. After critical acclaim, the production eventually transferred to Southwark Playhouse from 2 - 26 Oct. 2019.

Islander is available on BBC Radio Four on 22 January. You can listen to Islander here
