About: The Nightmares of Carlos Fuentes

A black comedy – an Iraqi refugee comes to London in search of his dream...

Salim, an Iraqi refugee, takes on a new identity In London after fleeing persecution in Baghdad. He is picked up, and marries a wealthy older woman, who enthusiastically coaches him in the bedroom for his forthcoming citizenship test. But Carlos Fuentes finds that knowing the names of all six of Henry VIII’s wives can neither satisfy his new wife nor turn him into a “Britishman”. The nightmare of the violence of his past catches up with him, and suddenly he is at the airport,accompanied by a G4 security guard, waiting for a plane to take him back to Iraq

The World premiere of Rashid Razaq’s new play is based on an award-winning short story by Hassan Blasim. It is directed by Nicolas Kent, who was artistic director of the Tricycle Theatre from 1984-2012, and the cast includes Nabil Elouahabi who was a leading actor in the Olivier nominated trilogy “The Great Game -Afghanistan” and on Channel 4 TV's Bafta nominated “Top Boy”
