Runtime: 1h 45m
Islands is an ink black comedy about tax havens, enormous greed, and the few who have it all. Join Olivier Award-nominated Caroline Horton and her filthy ensemble on Haven, a bizarre and monstrous world where no-one has to pay… for anything. Devised in consultation with experts on offshore finance, Islands sounds a warning siren—we ignore the tax practices of wealthy individuals and multinational companies at our peril. Oxfam estimate that there is $18.5 trillion siphoned out of the world economy into tax havens by wealthy individuals alone. Christian Aid has calculated that 1,000 children die every day as a result of tax evasion. This is not just a political or social challenge; this is a matter of human rights.
