A Fast Moving Comedy written & directed by Laurence Allan
There’s only one better footballer than Liam – his girlfriend jade. But he’ll sort that out when the whole gang go to Ibiza for sun, sex and soccer. Except Jade’s had enough of football altogether and changed to holiday destination to Taransay – a remote Scottish Island. No TV, no pub and no phone signal!
Ten rampant teenagers trapped on a deserted island with two crazy Buddhists.
Lord of the Flies meets Castaway.
The play was first seen at Plymouth Theatre Royal for the Japan World Cup and was written for a group young England fanatics. This time round it was updated and adapted for a gang of Welsh Valley boys and girls who support A – B –E – anyone but England. But if you’re from Plymouth or Porth when you’re trapped on a remote island, your allegiances start to change.
How? Originally commissioned by Theatre Royal Plymouth for their 30 strong Young Company, to celebrate the 2002 Football World Cup. It was a play I always wanted to plant on home soil and was perfect as the inaugural production for The Chaingang, Chainworks intergenerational community group.
Cast: 14 teenagers – gender variable.
When? Summer 2014
Where? The Factory, Porth, South Wales
