Theatre Without Walls /Public Works present

Isabelle Blake is leaving her old life behind. She has been dreaming of escape for as long as she can remember and the family bookshop has always got in her way but now there is a new man in her life and things are starting to get interesting.


This funny and moving production is for anyone who has ever fallen in love or dreamed of a new life. ‘Desert Island Books’ is a literary romance with a loveable quirky heroine delivered in a pacey physical theatre style.


This show can be performed almost anywhere! It is perfect for encouraging reading and introducing community audiences to the arts. The show includes a fun discussion and book swap-where audience members can bring a book to swap for a new one or share their own favourite reads.


Workshop add on: This add on is available for schools and community groups-

Creative Drama workshop using our costumes and props where the audience become the actors and  develop the story from where the play leaves off.
