Curveball - A True Story, Unfortunately

Online Event

Dates and times

3 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

 

A sharply written and bitterly funny political satire from Germany based on an obscure true story that became one of the main catalysts for the Iraq War. Hapless bioweapons expert Wolf is obsessed with the idea that Iraq is producing anthrax. His superior assigns him as case officer for Iraqi asylum seeker Rafid Alwan who claims to have worked for Saddam Hussein’s bioweapons programme. Despite the shaky provenance, Rafid, nicknamed ‘Curveball’ becomes a valuable asset in an increasingly absurd chain of events driven by political advantage rather than the truth.
