All the news and reviews from Qudz, plus a mouth-watering Middle Eastern meal deal!

We’d like to tell you a story.

This is a story of a land caught between opposing ideologies- a country on the brink.
This is a story of a young man and his search for The Truth amid the horror and corruption of war.
This is an epic journey down an ancient river and into the unknown.

This is Iraq. This is Qudz.

“A powerful and moving production that offers a much-needed alternative to the neo-liberal vision of “democracy at all costs””
-The Arab Review

“A well-performed and incredibly interesting work which fully explores the potential of The Yard’s unique space…”
-One Stop Arts

The Yard welcomes QUDZ : a new play zooming in on daily life in the face of war and occupation

We are INCREDIBLY excited to invite you to the premiere of a new show written and directed by Tarek Iskander.

This is an extraordinary show that zooms in on everyday life in the face of war and occupation.
This is the story of a land in turmoil.
This is Qudz.

At The Yard 17 October – 3 November

Saddam promised Unity and delivered Collapse.
Bush promised Freedom and delivered Chaos.

For a young Iraqi soldier sent on an epic journey down the Tigris, all he has to deliver is Qudz – an enigmatic militia leader – who promises to hold the answer to all the country’s problems.

Merging Conrad’s Heart of Darkness with astonishing first-hand accounts, and blending drama, live music, film, animation and dance, Qudz captures the particular lunacy of living in a warzone.


News from the Yard Kitchen!

In order to keep our menu fresh, exciting and bang up-to-date, The Yard has launched a programme of chef residencies.

We’re offering chefs the opportunity to call The Yard ‘home’ for anything from 3 weeks to 2 months, showcasing their work by cooking tasty, creative and affordable food for our hungry and highly discerning audiences!

The result is a menu that is always changing.

The food for the next few weeks is lovingly prepared by The Sunrise Curry Club. It is intensely delicious.
Fresh, vibrant and including plenty of delicious vegetarian dishes, this menu really packs a punch. And what’s more, the menu is always changing!
