By Tim Firth.  Summer Rep production

A COMEDY IN THICK FOG

 

TERRIFIC TALE OF TEAM-BUILDING TORMENT!

 

Sent on a team-building week-end in the Lake District, four businessmen of disparate character find themselves marooned on an island.

Fog-bound, ship-wrecked and with their combined knowledge of the outdoors amounting to zero, they struggle against nature, each other and themselves in this hilarious comedy. Neville appoints himself leader but, as hopes of rescue dim, roles shift and the amusement becomes a little darker.
