In the not too distant future, flooding and coastal erosion have ravaged many parts of the UK, and scores of towns and cities have been destroyed. Despite the warning signs, the rallies and petitions, the problem has been largely ignored. Now the country is in a state of emergency.
Turning the international refugee crisis on its head, The Castaways is the story of Sam, a young mother trying to protect her family and find a new home in a country on the brink of environmental devastation. She and her young son are flooded out of their home in York, and from there they embark on a journey
that will lead them from camp to camp, forced into a reality of hunger and uncertainty. With a growing population of desperate migrants, border control is strict, but as the veneer of civilisation begins to slip, Sam is faced with the dangerous decision to flee.

A brand skanking new solo show at Bobiks “What am I even doing here? Wasn’t I supposed to be famous and successful by now? Is this it? If this is it, I might as well start getting fat.” Meet Kate. She’s a Skank. She could be a successful writer, if she could just concentrate. Instead, her head is filled with recycling concerns, genius ways to ensnare Sexy Gary, and the persistent fear that
her internal organs are against her. Clementine Bogg-Hargroves reveals the witty, dark and often filthy thoughts of an ambitious twenty-something grappling with her uncertain future. How can someone so confident be so terrified?
