'A riveting, fascinating play' ★★★★ The Times
'A terrific central performance from Henry Lloyd-Hughes' ★★★★ The Independent
September 2003. Rory Stewart, a thirty year old former British diplomat, is posted to serve as governor in a province of the newly liberated Iraq. His job is to help build a new civil society at peace with itself and its neighbours - an ambitious mission, admittedly, but outperforming Saddam should surely not prove too difficult…
Stephen Brown’s new play, based on Rory Stewart’s critically acclaimed memoir Occupational Hazards, tells an extraordinary story about the moral conflicts, the dangers and the comic absurdities inherent in any foreign occupation.
Brown scripted Filter Theatre’s sell-out hit Faster (BAC, London/Lyric Studio, London/UK tour/Frankfurt/59E59 Theater, New York). His play, Future Me, premiered at Theatre503 in London to wide acclaim, toured the UK and had US productions in Berkeley, CA and at the Public Theater, New York.
Simon Godwin makes his Hampstead directorial debut. His recent credits include Twelfth Night, starring Tamsin Greig and Man and Superman, starring Ralph Fiennes (both National Theatre).
Henry Lloyd-Hughes returns to Hampstead following Tiger Country in 2011. His other theatre credits include Posh (Royal Court/West End) and The Changeling (Young Vic). His television credits include Indian Summers, Parade’s End and The Inbetweeners.
