Dinner with Saddam (Press Night)

Dinner with Saddam at the Menier Chocolate Factory London
What a treat it was to see such a great play by the mighty Anthony Horowitz, and then meet him and all the cast afterwards. An added bonus was to have even more celebs to meet at the after party! And I got a photo with all of them (except Ian Hislop and Meera Syal) and every member of the cast.

I found Dinner with Saddam extremely funny and thought provoking. I loved it! It makes sharp comments about family life and politics, occasionally venturing into farce, laced with some very witty lines. It's also pretty tense at times! It has a very clever story line and each character is wonderful - what a great cast they've assembled for this show! 

Go and see it! I guarantee you an excellent night out. 

I see the play has got itself a well-deserved 5-star review on What's On Stage!
