The Madogs of Diego, at the SF Fringe

Political science and theater studies intersect in this week's review (of The Madogs of Diego, at the Fringe), with Brian's first scholarly contribution to one of my articles!

The historical context, I confess, waxes a little ponderous. As my editor noted, I would have done well to make my background information more clearly serve a critical argument. But the history of the Chagos Islands, of which this 80-minute play chronicles only one moment, is very much worth the read.

Thank you, Brian!
