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.

“New show about offshore tax havens is luridly absurdist, but the end result is deeply tedious”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“An ambitious exercise in the grotesque which lacks clarity and focus”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Caroline Horton’s toothless, self-delighting show leaves its object of ridicule serenely untouched”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“There’s a scene deep, deep into Caroline Horton’s rambling satirical cabaret ‘Islands’ where it all actually comes together.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Olivier Award-nominated Caroline Horton's new play about tax havens has opened at the west London venue”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Boisterous but toothless... a sub-Jarry splurge of cross-dressing, clowning, toilet humour and terrible music. ”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
