I was often told about the hot summer nights in Baghdad and how everyone would take their beds up on the roof to sleep under the stars. My aunt Yvonne recalled:
“Beds with mosquito nets were set up and the whole family slept there. For a little girl the night sky dense with stars was fascinating but also frightening. Falling stars used to worry me as I thought this might happen to earth our star, so I would then creep into the foot of my parents’ bed where I felt safer.”
Booking is open for the two full performances of The Wolf of Baghdad at London’s JW3 on 21st and 22nd November. More information here.
