All I Want is A British Passport
by Nadim Sawalha
This satirical one-man show charts Mohamed Al Fayed’s defiant clashes with an unwelcoming British government in his quest for citizenship. Set shortly after the death of Dodi and Diana, when his story was rarely out of the news, it provides a witty insight into the mind of the man with the most famous ‘corner shop’ in the world.
Nadim’s imagination was captured when he portrayed Al Fayed in the BBC docudrama Justice In Wonderland. He subsequently met with the man himself for coffee and cake at Harrods, before embarking on a period of extensive research. The result was a thought-provoking comment on government, authority and immigration, which attracted a dedicated following during its many outings.
