SAN DIEGO -- Neville's Island, described as "a comic riff on William Golding's Lord of the Flies, will run May 23-June 28 at the Old Globe Theatre.
Tim Firth's play was commissioned in 1991 by Alan Ayckbourn's theatre in England and transferred soon after to London's West End. It deals with four men on a corporate team-building exercise.
Director Andrew J. Traister, who staged last summer's smash hit Below the Belt at the Globe, said "the businessmen in Firth's play are completely out of their element--in a place where they have no right being at all. None of these men are capable of spending a night on a deserted island, whether it is in the populated Lake District or not."
The cast includes Curtis Armstrong, Mark Ryan, Associate Artist Don Lee Sparks and James Winker.
Tues.-Sat. at 8 PM; Sun. 7 PM; Sat. & Sun. matinees at 2 PM. Tickets are $22-$39. Call (619) 239-2255. -- By Willard Manus
