    A man. A woman. An island. A fight for the kingdom, for human dignity and to make sense of a dying world. A journey to understand the beauty and horror of their sexual attraction. Buried trauma leading to unexpected places. How did they, and the world around them, come to this? Is he the Messiah of an alien race? Is she descended from a Sea God? And who controls the horde of monkeys?

    Shipwrecks and Dreams productions present Philip Ridley’s extraordinary play. Its poetic vision of love, loss, memory and hope is brutal as it is beautiful. A play for those who have dealt with the politics of attraction this is direct, relatable theatre in the intimate space of the Spielman Theatre.

    Shipwrecks and Dreams seek to create bold, challenging, heartfelt work. We believe in the power of the spoken word, of the importance of play and of speaking our truths. We are delighted to be able to present this work at Tobacco Factory Theatres, the arts venue at the heart of our community.
