THE UNKNOWN ISLAND opens 11th September at the Gate Theatre

Ellen McDougall directs her own adaptation of of Nobel Laureate José Saramago’s beautiful, inventive and rebellious story, The Tale of The Unknown Island.

You ask the king for a boat.  
You want to start again.  
You won’t take no for an answer.  
The Unknown Island is the short story of a long journey; a tale of the epic distances between each of us; an exploration of whether it’s possible to
reimagine the world.
– And what is this unknown island you want to go in search of?
– If I could tell you that, it wouldn’t be unknown.
