The Castaways

In the not too distant future, flooding and coastal erosion have ravaged many parts of the UK, and scores of towns and cities have been destroyed. Now the country is in a state of emergency.

Turning the international refugee crisis on its head, this is the story of young mum, Sam, and her son, Alfie, who are flooded out of their home in York and forced to join a growing population of desperate migrants embarking on a journey that will lead them from camp to camp. As the country lurches towards environmental devastation and the veneer of civilisation begins to slip, Sam must face a dangerous decision in order to survive.

The Castaways is a solo show initially created as part of a Script Yorkshire (York Branch) and Wildgoose Theatre project, and has received support from Riding Lights Theatre Company, Hull Help for Refugees, and was commissioned by Sheffield’s Migration Matters Festival 2018.


A week of exciting new theatre curated by Visionari.
