FCT returns with its 41st Fringe show following five-star reviews and sell outs for Sister Act and Jesus Christ Superstar. Once on This Island by Lyn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime) is set in the Caribbean and tells the story of a peasant girl on a tropical island – you can expect real rain in our show. She uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes. The show was revived in 2017 and again proved a Broadway smash hit. It won the Olivier for Best New Musical in 1995.
