It’s the final week to see Musical Theatre Review award-winning and Offies-nominated new musical Islander. And, after its premiere at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, it’s racked another wave of critical raves in its London transfer to Southwark Playhouse.
Islander most certainly isn’t a rehearsal, it’s a perfectly finished piece, like a stone polished by the waves.
Touching, heart-wrenching and totally original, Islander is the exploration of the turmoil and devastation of small communities in the light of gentrification.
Finn Anderson’s stunning score for Islander at Southwark Playhouse is performed beautifully by Bethany Tennick and Kirsty Findlay who pull off Amy Draper’s ingenious concept & direction seamlessly.
