This Wounded Island
By Anything Other Theatre Company
Anything Other Theatre Company presents This Wounded Island.
Written by Kent playwright Natalie Mitchell.
A love story, and a love letter to Chatham. A brand new play about identity, place and belonging, inspired by stories from the Kent community.
One town, one couple, forty years.
Bob and Rose meet as excited teenagers in the 70s. From their first date, its clear that this is the start of something special. But unknown to them, the course of their relationship is intrinsically tied to the fortunes of the Chatham Dockyard, and when its suddenly closed, their lives are irrevocably changed. Recovering from their losses isn’t going to be easy.
This Wounded Island is touring to arts and community venues in Medway, North Kent & London in Spring 2019.

Anything Other Theatre Company are based in Kent. We explore divisive subjects and put underrepresented voices at the centre of our work. We want to bring people together at different ends of society to create communities on, and beyond, the stage. We think that negotiating the sticky uncertain middle is where great stories come from.
This Wounded Island has been kindly funded by Arts Council England, Lyrici Arts and Applause Rural Touring; and supported by Gravesham Arts Development Team and Councillor Vince Maple.
This show is billed as part of Paint The Town Festival in conjunction with Battersea Arts Centre and The Collaborative Touring Network.
