Prosper is an ex-Rasta lost in London, trying to make sense of his dog-filled dreams. Madame Talate remembers her island as a paradise and Teddy Hibbert loves turtles but has trouble remembering people. Their stories collide in a dream turned nightmare of one Stu Barber.

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, begins in the age of Cold War secrets and ends in the era of global warming.

Cardboard Citizens stages this compelling story in its trademark style where personal testimony and historical narrative meet to forge epic, mesmerising theatre, fusing music, video, and YouTube footage.

Moving, gripping and funny, A Few Man Fridays unearths an inglorious episode of British history, and explores the fantasies of the powerful, set against the dreams of the powerless.

This project is supported by Arts Council England through their Grants for the Arts fund.
