Synopsis
 
Island, a new play for young audiences by children's novelist Nicky Singer, is set on the remote Herschel Island in the middle of the Arctic Ocean and raises questions about the effects of climate change.
    The play centres on a London schoolboy, Cameron, forced to spend his school holiday with his scientist mother on the island, and without computer, phone or Facebook. Cameron can either assist with his mother’s scientific research or leave camp and explore. Armed with dustbin lids to ward off any danger, he sets out, and encounters an indigenous girl whose stories open up a different world.
Island is a commission by the National Theatre's Learning programme for primary schools and families.
