In the late 1960s the Chagos islanders were evicted from their Indian Ocean home to make way for a US military base. Set against the actual events of their displacement and fight for justice, A Few Man Fridays, began in the age of Cold War secrets and ends in the era of global warming.

"It has the daring sweep of Complicite’s Mnemonic and is almost as suspenseful as it is richly, hauntingly elegiac.” ***** Sunday Times

“An increasingly riveting evening that wraps hard facts in a parcel of fiction” **** Evening Standard
