A Museum in Baghdad

Age Restriction: 14+

Histories are uncovered and nations are debated in A Museum in Baghdad, receiving its London premiere at the Kiln Theatre. As two women dedicate their lives to the upkeep of an Iraqi museum 80 years apart from each other, questions are asked about preserving identities. So, if you want to see a brand new play that taps into culturally significant questions, you’ll want to see A Museum in Baghdad.

In 1926, the nation of Iraq is in its early years, with audiences meeting British archaeologist Gertrude Bell as she founds a museum Baghdad. In 2006, Ghalia Hussein is attempting to reopen the museum after looting during the war.

Decades apart, these two women share the same goals: to create a fresh sense of unity and nationhood, to make the world anew through the museum and its treasures. But in such unstable times, questions remain. Who is the museum for? Whose culture are we preserving? And why does it matter when people are dying?

Did you know?

The cast stars Emma Fielding as Gertrude Bell and Rendah Heywood as Ghalia Hussein.

A Museum in Baghdad is written by Hannah Khalil, a Palestinian-Irish writer.
