Tobacco Factory Theatres is delighted to welcome to Bristol and the intimate, in the round setting of our Factory Theatre, a life affirming drama of immense scale and power, set on the island where Mandela was held prisoner.

  • Island_crop_gallery

Two men, unlikely friends, stagger through days of crippling prison work, breaking free in nights of playful escapism and ecstatic, dreamlike joy. With just scraps from their cell, they prepare for a performance of Antigone in front of the prisoners and guards – an act of defiance from people who have lost everything.

With gut-wrenching emotion, soaring beauty and exquisite simplicity, this great drama of defiance and determination draws on the stories that linger from Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner.
