A co-production with The Garage, Norwich.
As part of an experimental rehabilitation programme, eight young offenders are taken to a long-abandoned island off the UK coast. A place of puffins and gale force winds. Here they will live self-sufficiently under the guidance of two reformed ex-offenders. They will learn the value of teamwork and the pleasure found in the ache of a muscle put to productive use. But how much hope is too much hope? And what will happen when the loyalties of this new ‘family’ are tested? A lawless new play about copulating seals, mind-altering fungus and why Lord Of The Flies is b@**$#!t.

Conceived by members of the Easter Writing Academy
