Hit comedy Neville’s Island returned to the West End, twenty years after its successful London debut and following a roaring reception at last year’s Chichester Festival.
Neville’s Island Theatre Breaks are no longer available
Written by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls and Kinky Boots), the comedy is set in the Lake District, with four businessmen heading out on a team-building exercise that goes disastrously wrong. Stranded on an island, battling the elements and each other, the squabbling colleagues find themselves at their wits end all too quickly.
Originally written as a play in 1992 and then filmed as TV special in 1998 starring Timothy Spall and Martin Clunes, the 2014 cast stars legendary comic performers Adrian Edmondson, Neil Morrissey, Robert Webb and Miles Jupp taking up residence in the Duke of York’s theatre.
Often farcical and always hilarious, the play will be one of the funniest in the West End this winter and is sure to make for a memorable theatre break full of laughter.

Neville’s Island Theatre Breaks always come with tickets and hotel accommodation and you can even add on rail travel making sure that you won’t be stranded on any remote islands in the South East!
When looking for nearby hotels consider the Radisson Blu Edwardian Leicester Square ( a five minute walk to the theatre) or the elegant 4 star deluxe Kingsway Hall on the other side of Covent Garden. For a rather swish five star break do check the Waldorf Hilton but if you are watching the pennies then the 3 star St Giles on the north side of Oxford Street or even the centrally located Covent Garden Travelodge may fit the bill. However, do consider the Bedford Hotel in leafy Russell Square too, which has just been done up and looks the bees knees (for a three star) and is a very reasonable price!
