This Island’s Mine

Who decides where we live? Where do we belong? And what happens if we can’t agree?

Ariel, a playful spirit of the air, Caliban, a hideous creature of the earth, and Stephano, a drunken Italian butler, all believe that they can say, ‘this island’s mine’. But do any of them really have that right?

Set in the extraordinary world of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, This Island’s Mine is filled with magic, music, and mayhem, and performed in the uniquely accessible Roustabout style. A thrilling new play, that challenges its young audience to explore ideas of colonialism, identity, and place.

For KS2 and above.

This is really speaking to our students… we can do something wonderful… this is cutting edge curriculum development.

This Island’s Mine for schools

This Island’s Mine will be available for schools in spring 2021. We are working with the One Bristol Curriculum and the University of Bristol to create a special filmed resource that will be made available to everyone who books.

This will include a full version of the production, that can be rewatched after the live performance, and a commentary on the play from experts, teachers, students, and the creative team, putting the play and its themes in its social and historical context, and giving stimuli for further debate and research.
