You’ve washed up on a new shore…

Can you navigate through this world where nothing is quite what it seems? The inhabitants of this island make strange noises and sprites hide around every corner. Where do you belong?

Discover your own magical powers in this truly interactive family experience. Join us for a mission which will lead you through puzzles, meeting mysterious characters and steering your team through the choppy seas to search for your new home.


"Although it is based around the themes and characters of one of Shakespeare’s best-known works, This Noisy Isle requires no knowledge of the original text to fully appreciate the performance. In doing so, it creates a friendly and approachable setting in which to pique the interest of a younger audience and inspire interaction with a much-loved classical text.” - A Younger Theatre

This is a brilliant, immersive, moving, almost promenade theatrical experience which impacts everyone involved, children and adults alike.“ – Broadway Baby

Originally performed in 2019 as a live immersive treasure hunt for children, the show has been adapted for lockdown audiences with an accompanying activity pack to keep children engaged and inspired as the characters lead them through their journey on the island.

Each character helps audiences participate with them in an activity to understand more about the island and to continue our journey onward. These activities involve using imagination, call and response, building, dressing up, and creativity.
