The Island Nation gives voice to these events through characters who take us right to the heart of the crisis: a young Tamil woman trapped in the war zone; a British UN worker who befriends her and becomes intimately involved in trying to mobilise the UN system to live up to its protection mandate; and a Norwegian peace negotiator whose involvement in the conflict spans more than a decade.

The performers were extremely talented and honestly conveyed the story which was inspired by true events. – from ayoungertheatre.
