The Last Colony: A Performance on Restoring an Island to its Rightful Owners

Philippe Sands QC’s The Last Colony chronicles the unlawful mistreatment of the inhabitants of the Chagos Islands by the British Government. In this illustrated performance he presents readings and images together with RSC and Bridgerton actor Adjoa Andoh and music by acclaimed French pianist Guillaume de Chassy. Here, the emotional story of one Chagosian inhabitant – uprooted from her home and still yearning to return – is brought powerfully to life.
