An English sailor, shipwrecked on a remote island, works against all odds to survive alone for 25 years. Until one day, he rescues a stranger from brutal savages and the two develop a remarkable friendship. Adapted from the classic novel by Daniel Defoe, this imaginative retelling emphasizes communication, embracing cultural differences and empathy. Set sail with Robinson and Friday on an adventure full of comedic miscommunication, history and heart! 

This production contains music, puppetry and text to recreate Robinson Crusoe's tropical home. Although alone for the first 25 years, our production has Friday help tell the story from the beginning. And the Axis twist is casting a female in the traditionally male role of Friday. In the past, the play toured across Canada, to the United States, Singapore and Malaysia. Axis Theatre was thrilled to bring our reimagined version of this award-winning production, directed by new Artistic Director Chris McGregor, to BC schools and venues in 2016-17. It was a hit and is booking now for the 2017-18 season.

Axis Theatre productions are guided by core values of education and engaging young audiences. Our own brand of physical theatre brings unique local and multicultural stories to life. We travel the country and sometimes the globe, performing in community venues, theatre and schools. Our audience is diverse with educators, teachers, parents and young people, who welcome us into their communities to share valuable life-lessons in character and culture with the next generation. Our audience is our passion - we live for their laughs and captivated faces.
