This Island’s Mine
Ariel was always here.
Caliban was born here.
And Stephano has just arrived.
They all claim ‘this island’s mine’. But do any of them have that right? And what happens if they can’t agree?
Set in the extraordinary world of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Roustabout present a playful and daring exploration of the place we choose to call home. Filled with magic, music and mayhem, this show explores themes of colonialism, identity and place, encouraging young people to ask: Where do I belong? Where is my home? Is it truly mine?
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
Developed with the support of Tobacco Factory Theatres, 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.
