FRINGE FIRST WINNER at the 2014 Edinburgh
Festival Fringe.

Mazrat Prison, Iraq. Previously one of Saddam’s most
notorious torture houses, where more than 10,000 people died, it is now under
Allied command.

Nassir works here, translating for the American
interrogators. He’s local, pro-Western, determined to bring liberal values to
his country and is about to get married to Zoya, his sweetheart.  But when
he is recognised by Faisal, new prisoner and psychotic supporter of the old
regime, his life becomes a living hell.

Born out of Henry Naylor’s own experiences of a visit to
Bagram Airbase in 2003, The Collector is a compelling tale of murder, evil and
betrayal set in occupied Iraq.  One of the most highly-acclaimed shows at
the 2014 Edinburgh Festival, it won a prestigious Scotsman Fringe First Award,
which was followed by a sold-out run at London’s Arcola Theatre.
