If I could tell you that, it wouldn’t be unknown.
You want to go in search of an unknown island.
Because somewhere out there, there must be something else.
Because you want to find out who you are when you are there.
You ask the king for a boat.
You don’t know where you are going, or even how to sail.
You won’t take no for an answer.
The Unknown Island is a beautiful, inventive and rebellious adventure story about dreaming of the impossible and trying to cross the vast distances between ourselves and each other.
Based on Nobel prize-winning novelist Jose Saramago’s short story, The Tale of the Unknown Island, adapted for the stage by Ellen McDougall and Clare Slater.
