Details

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

Turning the international refugee crisis on its head, young mum, Sam, and her son, Alfie, are 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 was created as part of a Script Yorkshire (York Branch) and Wildgoose Theatre project. It has received support from Riding Lights Theatre Company, Hull Help for Refugees and was commissioned by Sheffield’s Migration Matters Festival.
