Occupational Hazards

For Stephen Brown’s latest show, headed to the Hampstead Theatre this April, the writer of Faster turns his attentions to the Iraq war and the issues surrounding foreign occupation. The show, Occupational Hazards, will be directed by Simon Godwin and will take audiences back to the early years of the last decade when the Iraq war is in full swing and the biggest difficulties are now becoming apparent.

It is based on the memoirs of Rory Stewart, an MP who became the Coalition Provisional Authority's deputy governor as a British diplomat back in 2003. The book was published in 2006 and this play, adapted by an acclaimed writer, will now bring the story to a new audience.

So we find ourselves in 2003 with Occupational Hazards, joining Stewart as the attempts to rebuild Iraq get under way. It is supposed to be a turning point for the people of Iraq, but it is going to be harder than first assumed and, in the years since, this has been reflected both in the realities on the ground and the changing public opinion. It is a story of democracy and facing some harsh realities.

Stewart’s book received positive reviews when it was released and it has been known for some time that Stephen Brown would be bringing it to the stage. Now, in 2017, it is finally here and with Simon Godwin directing it is going to be a must-see show as it takes to the stage of the Hampstead Theatre in North London.

Occupational Hazards runs at the Hampstead Theatre from Monday 8th May 2017 (previews from Friday 28th April 2017).
