|Other Information||Savages tells the story of the abduction of a British diplomat in Brazil during the era of military dictatorship in the countyry during the last century. The diplomat is being held by a left-wing revolutionary group, but his mind is preoccupied by those in power in Brazil, who have imminent plans to exterminate a native American tribe, for land hungry developers. Brendan Fehily played the role of the diplomat, while the revolutionary group's leader was played by Michael McCarthy. Among the extended cast was Fifi Wilson, who was to move onto major international success in her career, on stage and screen, as Fiona Shaw.|
