Background


Following the success of their five-time Offie nominated production of Steven Berkoff's EAST, award-winning company Atticist returns to the King's Head Theatre with the first London revival of David Greig's Outlying Islands since its sold-out run at the Royal Court almost twenty years ago.

Synopsis


1939, Scotland.


Two young ornithologists arrive on a remote island.


They've been tasked by the Ministry to conduct a study of the bird population.


With only the island's authoritarian leaseholder and his niece for company, they find themselves drawn to the wildness of the island, igniting growing tensions and repressed passions.


Blurring the line between fantasy and reality, Greig's poetic, funny, and politically charged play explores a society on the edge of immense change.
