National Theatre Learning presents a new play for young audiences by Nicky Singer directed by Adam Penford. The cast includes Rebecca Boey and James Cooney.

In the middle of the Arctic Ocean lies an island where it is always day. The ice groans and cracks, the ground shifts under your feet, and skies flash with ice storms that freeze flesh in thirty seconds flat. Little wonder Cameron is reluctant to spend a week of his school holidays there.

Cut off from the rest of the world on this deserted island, he has no computer or phone and his iPod is fast running out of battery. Cameron can either assist with his mother's scientific research or leave camp and explore. Armed with dustbin lids to ward off any danger, he sets out to see if the island is, indeed, uninhabited.

Nicky Singer's first children's novel Feather Boy won the Blue Peter 'Book of the Year' Award, was adapted for TV (winning a BAFTA for Best Children's Drama) and then commissioned as a musical by National Theatre Connections with lyrics by Don Black and music by Debbie Wiseman.

Her new novel for children, The Flask, will be be published in February.
