I have noticed that something draws us towards outlying islands. Some force pulls…Directed by Jessica Lazar, Outlying Islands demonstrates the lyricism and humanity that has made David Greig one of the UK’s leading dramatists. The play now returns in its first London revival since the Royal Court in 2002.
On the eve of the outbreak of World War II, two young ornithologists are sent to a remote Scottish Island by the government to conduct a survey of the island’s birds. Left to their own devices on an isolated and windswept scrap of land, the only other human inhabitants are Kirk, the aged and authoritarian leaseholder, and his niece Ellen. As their gaze turns inwards, the mainland recedes further into the distance and life on the island ignites desires and creates inescapable tensions.
Transporting us to a world where the line between reality and fantasy is blurred, David Greig’s funny, poetic and moving play bravely explores a society on the edge of immense change.
