Afridiziak review - The Island, Young Vic

Jimmy Akingbola and Daniel Poyser’s performance in this two-hander is top notch – with both clearly reaching to the depths of their souls to truly immerse themselves in their characters and portrayal of brotherhood.Feelings of jealousy and confinement collide with feelings of excitement and freedom as the two come to terms with how their lives are about to change for good.
