Zahid Mubarek, a young British Asian man was a local lad from Walthamstow, just a couple of miles up the road from this theatre. He got into trouble with the law and found himself in Feltham Young Offenders Institute. Little did he or his family know that he was about to be dealt a death sentence. On the eve of his release, Zahid was attacked by his cellmate. One week later he died of his injuries. How was this allowed to happen?One of Britain’s pre-eminent young writers traces a family’s pursuit of the truth behind his death. Based on interviews and accounts of the public inquiry into the fatal assault on Zahid Mubarek, Gladiator Games examines the staggering incompetence of the official response to this tragic event.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
