A compelling tale of murder, evil and betrayal.

2003. Mazrat Prison, Iraq. Previously one of Saddam’s most notorious torture houses, it is now under Allied command. Nassir is a translator for the American interrogators. He’s local, pro-Western, determined to bring liberal values to his country and set to be married. But when he is recognised by Faisal, new prisoner and psychotic supporter of the old regime, his life becomes hell.

Inspired by Henry Naylor’s own experiences of a visit to Bagram Airbase in 2003, The Collector was one of the most highly acclaimed shows at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival, winner of Scotsman Fringe First Award and a sell-out run at London’s Arcola Theatre.

Kathryn Barker Productions presents The Collector by Henry Naylor directed by Michael Cabot Lighting by Andy Grange 2003.
