Theatre on 4: Occupational Hazards
Hampstead Theatre's true story of Rory Stewart's role as provincial governor in Iraq, performed in front of a live audience.
The best of British theatre performed in front of a live audience specially for Radio 4. Hampstead Theatre's gripping production of Occupational Hazards tells the extraordinary story of Rory Stewart's role as the 30 year old provincial Governor in newly-liberated Iraq, trying to build a new civil and democratic society out of the remains of Saddam Hussein's Iraq - riven with tribal and religious politics.
Occupational Hazards is written by Stephen Brown and based on Rory Stewart's critically acclaimed memoir. With a riveting performance by Henry Lloyd-Hughes as Stewart, it was recorded in binaural and immersive sound at Hampstead Theatre in May 2017.
