October 3 - November 4

Tim Johanson Productions present

The President and The Pakistani

By Rashid Razaq


Directed by Tom Attenborough.


Syrus Lowe as Barry Obama and Junaid Faiz as Sal Maqbool.


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.
