Bill Bryson’s smash-hit memoir journeys to the stage in an acclaimed adaptation, starring national treasure Les Dennis. From Calais to the Highlands, Bill travels the length and breadth of Britain rediscovering the green and pleasant land he calls his home, but how can the nation that produced Marmite and Gardener’s Question Time hold such a special place in this American’s heart?

NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND spent three years in The Sunday Times bestseller list, selling over two million copies, and was voted by Radio 4 listeners as the book which best represents England. This brand-new production is a laughter-filled show that celebrates one of the nation’s most treasured books, by one of the country’s most beloved authors. A tribute to all the quirks and idiosyncrasies of our small island, that will leave you feeling positively proud to be British.

THE STAGE “Captures the spirit and magic of the novel. Thoroughly enjoyable!”  ⭐⭐⭐⭐

WHATS ON STAGE “I suspect many who have the pleasure of this theatrical journey will, like me, be inspired to re-read Bryson’s Notes from a Small Island.”  ⭐⭐⭐⭐

THE TELEGRAPH “A comic pleasure! In the Watermill’s adaptation of Bryson’s tribute to this sceptred isle, nostalgia and warmth abound.”
