Islands – an obscene, ink-black comedy about tax havens, greed and the few who have it all. Olivier nominee Caroline Horton and her foul ensemble plunge us into a monstrous world where no-one has to pay… for anything.
Islands spits in the face of polite political debate. Incandescent with rage, it hurls out images of the putrid end-times of ultimate freedom and the rotten, violent underbelly of offshore finance.
“The most talked about show this year”
“What you see, hear, and smell is a playful, overblown, monstrous journey”
“Audacious, brutal, scatological and not for the squeamish, the excellent ensemble of bouffons and camp queens leave stains wherever they land, and they're hard to remove. They lampoon apathy and complacent anti-voters in fine lusty voice… The kind of agit-prop it didn't seem possible to make anymore.”
