Dinner With Saddam opening in September

Mon, July 13, 2015

"Saddam, fearful of assassination attempts, was known to move regularly from private home to private home. Even before the war, he declined to spend nights in one of his palaces.” USA Today, 20th April 2003

So what happens when Saddam Hussein turns up on your doorstep and announces he is staying for dinner? Political and personal issues are top of the menu, but behind the kitchen door something else far more sinister is cooking…

Written by Anthony Horowitz and directed by Lindsay Posner, the cast will be lead by Sanjeev Bhaskar (Goodness Gracious Me/Spamalot), starring alongside Nathan Amzi (Urinetown/In the Heights), Ilan Goodman (Bad Jews/Intimate Apparel) and Rebecca Grant (Seminar/Holby City). Further casting to be announced.

Dinner With Saddam opens at the Menier Chocolate Factory on 10th September. Tickets can be found here.
