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. This new play from Cardboard Citizens and Artistic Director Adrian Jackson explores the fantasies of the powerful, set against the dreams of the powerless.
