Few Man Fridays, A

Adrian Jackson
A Few Man Fridays unearths an inglorious episode of British history. Between 1967 and 1973, the population of the Chagos Islands was evicted to make way for a US military base. For forty years they have fought for justice in an epic struggle that is unlikely to end even when the European Court of Justice delivers a ruling later this year. A Few Man Fridays traces the displacement of these 'unpeople' and the successive denial of their right to nationhood.

Impassioned... The script spins out in all sorts of intriguing ways... an increasingly riveting evening that wraps hard facts in a parcel of fiction –   Evening Standard
