“….Tennick & Findlay are superb”    Mary Brennan - The Herald  

'Mystical in content and audacious in its presentation, Islander is a musical for just two performers which is thought-provoking and intriguing in equal measure’.  

Thom Dibdin - All Edinburgh Theatre 

“It’s both the complexity and simplicity of Islander that make it so thoroughly enjoyable” 

               Kelly Aptler - The List 


★★★★ ★★★★ ★★★★

Eilidh has never left her island. Every day is the same. Same chores, same people, same conversations. She stands on the cliffs and dreams of the Bigland over the sea.

Then one day a strange girl from faraway arrives on the Island - and with her, events that will change Eilidh's life forever.

Boldly exploring themes of conflict, migration and identity, Islander is for everyone 8 years and older. Blending dramatic action, epic storytelling and a cappella song, the performers live-record and layer their voices with looping technology to create a feast for the ears and imagination.
