This is my world, I am the king, I make the rules and everyone else can go to hell.

This is off-shore. 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. Islands is an illuminating, absurd and powerful new show about tax havens, little empires, enormous greed, and the few who have it all.

Hilarious and unnerving, this ink-black comedy with music plunges you into a monstrous, secretive world where it really seems that no-one has to pay.... for anything. Head off-shore and frolic with those who have it all worked out as they feed their addiction to wealth, power and material stuff. The play received its world premiere at the Bush Theatre, London, on 15 January 2015.
