Island Song by Carner & Gregor

Director Iain Reekie

Designer Simon Wanstall Pape

Lighting Designer Stacey Sandford

Sound Designer George Summersgill

Musical Director Euan Wilson

Originally written as a five-hand song cycle, this piece has been developed into a full-scale musical by New York based writer/composers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor, in collaboration with our ground-breaking Actor Musicianship course. This will be the world-premiere of a piece that takes us through the poignant and hilarious journeys of 15 young New Yorkers caught in a twisted love affair with their city, driven by a kinetic and eclectic score, featuring 5 MAC nominated songs that captures every urbanite’s triumphs, disappointments and ever tested perspective.
