If Lonely Planet says ‘don’t go’, you’ll always find a Kiwi backpacker who’ll take no notice. So here he is in Iraq.
Two Kiwis, two Americans, two Iraqis, a cafe in Baghdad - Let Freedom Reign!
An exotic tragi-comic epic with romantic overtones, Baghdad, Baby! is a perfect balance of humour, politics, broken hearts and outrage. This is primarily a play about people, our common humanity; how, when faced with violence and our need for love and security, we all want the same fundamental things.
"Dean Parker’s ingenious take on occupied Iraq is in turn insightful, humorous, sardonic, heart-warming, heart-rending and spine chilling... Parker puts the simplistic propaganda of all political factions into perspective."
