About Baghdad Wedding
In Iraq, a wedding is not a wedding unless shots get fired. It’s like in England where a wedding is not a wedding unless someone pukes or tries to grope one of the bridesmaids. That’s just the way it goes. Cited by Indian critics as “a production of great value”, Hassan Abdulrazzak’s first play reminds us of the infinite human contradictions within any nation. From cosmopolitan London to the chaos of war-ravaged Baghdad, this is the tale of three friends, who grapple with their cultural, political and sexual identities, torn between two worlds. And one wedding that goes horribly wrong.
