CASTING BREAKDOWN for PROJECT ÍSLAND [R&D]
from new Welsh theatre company Everything at Once
A small fishing village. A polar bear is spotted. A child goes missing. Rumours begin. Blame is placed. The Icecaps are melting, and we are responsible. How does a small community cope with the repercussions of climate change?
