The full cast for The Nightmares of Carlos Fuentes are Caroline Langrishe (Lydia King), Sara Bahadori (Case Worker/Sahar Husain) and Selva Rasalingam (Kevin/Khaled Al Hamrani) who join the previously announced Nabil Elouahabi (Carlos Fuentes). Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action at the Arcola Theatre!

Rashid Razaq's new play, The Nightmares of Carlos Fuentes, is based on an award-winning short story by Hassan Blasim. It is directed by Nicolas Kent, who was Artistic Director of the Tricycle Theatre from 1984-2012. Design is by Ellan Parry, lighting by Matt Eagland and sound by Andy Graham. Executive producers are PW Productions & The Heritage Arts Company.

Salim, an Iraqi refugee, takes on a new identity (Carlos Fuentes) in London after fleeing persecution in Baghdad. He is picked up, and marries a wealthy older woman, who enthusiastically coaches him in the bedroom for his forthcoming citizenship test. But Carlos Fuentes finds that knowing the names of all six of Henry VIII''s wives can neither satisfy his new wife nor turn him into a "Britishman". The nightmare of the violence of his past catches up with him, and suddenly he is at the airport, accompanied by a G4 security guard, waiting for a plane to take him back to Baghdad.

THE NIGHTMARES OF CARLOS FUENTES plays the Arcola Theatre, 23 July through 16 August 2014, with a press opening slated for tomorrow, July 29, 2014. For tickets, call the Box Office at 0207 503 1646 or go online at www.arcolatheatre.com.
