'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 fuck one of the bridesmaids. That's the way it goes.'

From cosmopolitan London to the chaos of war-ravaged Baghdad, this is the comic tale of three friends, torn between two worlds, and a wedding that goes horribly wrong.

Baghdad Wedding premiered at the Soho Theatre in June 2007 and was the winner of the George Devine, Meyer-Whitworth (2008) and Pearson (2009) awards.
