The President and The Pakistani


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Directed by Tom Attenborough.

1985. Harlem. 3am. Barry Obama and his room-mate Sal Maqbool are looking for a missing dog on the streets of New York.

The President and The Pakistani is the story of a young man and the friend he has to leave behind to achieve his dreams. Based on the incredible chapter in the life of Barack Obama, when he lived in a crime-ridden and violent neighbourhood with an illegal Pakistani immigrant, this is a gripping play about a night when a hunt for the truth exposes the lies we want to believe in.

Following on from their collaboration on Arab Spring (The Nursery) The President and The Pakistani is a new work by playwright and journalist Rashid Razaq, directed by Tom Attenborough.
