Baghdaddy Theatre Tickets

Baghdaddy

“Congratulations! Your pain is commercially viable.”


It’s 1991 and the Gulf War rages three thousand, three hundred and twenty miles away. Darlee is 8 years old, crying behind the wheely book case in Miss Stratford’s classroom. She’s just realised she’s Iraqi. Or half. Maybe both.


What she can’t process now, she’ll be haunted by later; the spirits hounding her will make sure of that…


Baghdaddy is a playfully devastating coming-of-age story, told through clowning and memory to explore the complexities of cultural identity, generational trauma and a father-daughter relationship amidst global conflict.


Jasmine Naziha Jones’s debut play was developed as part of an Introduction to Playwriting group at the Royal Court. Royal Court Associate Milli Bhatia (seven methods of killing kylie jenner) directs.


Baghdaddy has been generously supported by a lead gift from Charles Holloway. It is a co-production with SISTER.

The venue supports audience members, unless medically exempt, to wear face coverings throughout the venue and in the auditorium, out of respect for others, and in support of the cast.
