Images have been released offering a first glimpse at the cast of the premiere of Anthony Horowitz's play Dinner with Saddam, which opens at the Menier Chocolate Factory tomorrow.

Steven Berkoff leads the cast as Saddam Hussein, joined by Shobu Kapoor, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Nathan Amzi, Ilan Goodman and Rebecca Grant.

According to press material:

"So what happens when Saddam Hussein turns up on your doorstep and announces he is staying for dinner? Political and personal issues are top of the menu, but behind the kitchen door something else far more sinister is cooking…"

Directed by Lindsay Posner, the production will have design by Tim Shortall, lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by Gregory Clarke and music by Matthew Scott.

Dinner with Saddam runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory from 22 September to 14 November. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
