The Island is a politically visceral piece of theatre based on a true story.
Set in the same prison where Nelson Mandela was held, this universal story attacks our ability to passively accept immoral laws.
How much pain does a state need to inflict before you fight it?
2018 marks Nelson Mandela’s centenary year and Fio want to celebrate an influential historical icon and ask the question, Do we ever learn from those who came before?
Two men, political prisoners and unlikely friends, stagger through days of pointless, back-breaking labour, coping with vicious beatings from the guards and spending their nights remembering a life outside their current misery. They prepare for a performance of Antigone in front of the other inmates and guards – an act of defiance from people who have lost everything…
This soaring, award-winning drama draws on the stories that linger from the notorious prison on Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated.

Ffilm Cymru Wales’ latest round of Audience Access awards will continue to support Welsh venues and festivals to provide a dynamic and diverse variety of cinematic experiences for people right across Wales.
For the first time, new funding awards were made to Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival and Bangor’s Pontio Arts Centre. Running at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff between 28th and 30th September, and at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the 20th and 21st October, the Kotatsu Japanese Animation Festival will help audiences explore the latest and best in Japanese animation with films to suit all ages, as well as workshops and masterclasses with Japanese animators. The funding award will support Kotatsu in continuing to build new audiences, working alongside local community, youth and refugee groups to widen the festival’s reach.
Pontio Arts Centre’s new funding will support their project encouraging the community in Bangor to make the most of their local independent cinema. Their initiatives include providing more Welsh-language cinema, community interaction through volunteering, creating access for families with children with additional needs, and continuing the venue’s engagement of student and young audiences through film, gaming and interactive content.
In addition to the new awards, Ffilm Cymru continued to invest in three established film festivals to advance their expansion and reach new audiences.

Cardiff, 2023 – a law passed in Westminster in 2005 has just come into force. Children told they were born from donated eggs or sperm, upon turning 18, are now entitled to know the identity of their donor parent.
Mary seeks out sperm donor Chris, knocking his world asunder. In this new era, where racial tensions run high, she wants answers. Who are her half-siblings? Could she have inherited her deafness? And is Chris prepared to risk his marriage and own family plans to help her feel she belongs?
2023 has been developed with support from academics and researchers in the fields of gamete donation and D/deafness.
