Award-Winning production company Deadman (Artistic Director, Samuel Bossman) stage the first in a set of R&D performances telling the story of the most infamous crime in modern island legend, The Freshwater Five.

10 years on from the original convictions The Freshwater Five recounts the tale of five men caught up in one of the biggest drug busts in Isle of Wight history. Beginning on the eve of the 2021 appeal, Isle of Wight-born playwright Liam Patrick Harrison’s stageplay is a detailed and rich theatrical investigation into the men’s tragic downfall.
