Founded in 2016 by Artistic Director, Kamaal Hussain, The Thief of Baghdad tells stories of the Arab diaspora.

We are a theatre company which utilises traditional storytelling techniques, both Western and Middle Eastern, then combining these with innovative and contemporary theatrical devices to create theatre about Arabs, using Arab narratives, in a climate of geopolitical upheaval.  

We challenge the predominant Arab narrative in the West, humanising the generalised, and bringing the hidden to life.
