Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford will produce Sheila's Island, a new version of Tim Firth's comedy Neville's Island, as its first self-produced work for several years.

Sheila, Denise, Julie and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd's annual outward-bound team-building weekend on Derwentwater. They have an ordnance survey map, a compass and a list of clues. What could possibly go wrong?

Directed by Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Director and Chief Executive Joanna Read, the cast will comprise Judy Flynn, Sara Crowe, Rina Mahoney and Abigall Thaw and will open at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre 19–30 May before touring to Malvern, Norwich, Barnstaple, Richmond, Eastbourne and Cambridge.
