This interview with the Iraqi-born British playwright Hassan Abdulrazzak discusses his first full-length play, Baghdad Wedding. The play premiered in London in June 2007 and traces the everyday lives of three middle-class Iraqi friends in their thirties who travel between London and Baghdad in the years 1998 to 2005. In the interview, Abdulrazzak, who also has a PhD in Molecular Biology from University College London and who works as a researcher in the Foetal Stem Cell Therapy Group at Imperial College London, comments on recent dramatic representations of the Iraq war, storytelling, bilingual theatre, the effects of immigration and the influence of Harold Pinter on his work.
