A BRITISH SUBJECT

Genre: Dance
By Nichola McAuliffe. Directed by Hannah Eidinow.

At the age of 18, Mirza Tahir Hussain, a British Subject, arrived in Pakistan. 24 hours later a taxi driver was dead and Tahir was tried for his murder. Condemned to hang in the Criminal Court, he spent 18 years on Death Row. Don Mackay of London's Daily Mirror was the only journalist to visit him in that time.
Arriving in New York after a hugely successful run at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A British Subject is an extraordinary true-life tale of international politics and the media colliding with justice, civil liberties and ultimately, faith.
