SET in the dodgiest of Bristol bars and in a gloomy cave in the mountains above Kandahar in Afghanistan, Islands is a tense thriller of blood ties, politics, drugs, money and divided loyalties.

Old friendships are stretched to breaking point in an Afghan stand-off, a battle of wits – and a fight for survival.

The Princess Theatre Company presents a thriller which twists and turns and will keep the audience guessing about the outcome until the very last line.

As with all PTC productions, Islands is an original drama. In the past the PTC has tackled everything from the darkest of dark comedies to Roman myth and its own take on Shakespeare.

This time the PTC is flipping between Bristol in the 1970s and Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Islands is an adult play with adult themes, with strong language, drug references and racist language that might shock more modern sensibilities.

Islands will be performed at the Princess Theatre, Princess Street, Burnham on Sea, on Friday June 17 at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets cost £6 (£4 concessions).

Tickets are available at or on the door.
