A World Premiere
One Turbulent Ambassador follows the career of Craig Murray on his appointment as Her Majesty’s Ambassador and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2001.
Murray’s proximity to post 9/11 Iraq forces him into a political minefield that neither he nor the Foreign Office could have envisaged. When he walks into a bar in Tashkent late one Monday night and sees a beautiful belly dancer arching her limbs, his personal life threatens to become as turbulent as the political landscape around him.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see the world premiere of LAMDA’s latest collaboration with Robin Soans (writer of The Arab Israeli Cookbook and Talking to Terrorists). His first play for the Academy, Mixed Up North, premiered at LAMDA in 2008 and went on to tour nationally as an Out of Joint and Octagon Theatre Bolton production.
Presented by LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art).
