$20 – $30

Conceived by Amy Draper, with Music and Lyrics by Finn Anderson and Book by Stewart Melton. Islander was first produced in the U.K. by Helen Milne Productions.

Islander premiered and was named best musical at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. It went on to a successful run at Southwark Theatre in London. Called an “exceptionally thoughtful new musical” by reviewers, Islander gradually builds a “powerful feeling of otherness . . . and the unshakeable sense that there is something bigger than ourselves, whether that’s nature, religion or the myths we use to explain the world we live in.” (The Guardian).

The story takes place on an island somewhere on the Scottish coast where a poor economy and uncertain future have caused many residents to leave for the mainland. Those who remain must decide whether to stay or go. Drawing from Scottish folk-lore of the sea-bound “fin-folk”, myth and reality collide when the tide washes a mysterious stranger onto the beach, changing life forever.

This 75 minute musical is performed with no intermission.
