The Island

The IslandT2024492644
Set in the notorious Robben Island prison, The Island is a tribute to the men and women who, with indomitable courage and a longing for freedom, were imprisoned for taking part in the fight for a free and democratic South Africa. Following its premiere in 1973, the play toured internationally and was received with enormous acclaim, including Tony Awards for the two actors.
