There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

Voodoo, heroin and tobacco in a Cuban cigar factory, from the award-winning screenwriter of Dirty Pretty Things.

Amid the vibrant, spirited community of a Cuban cigar factory, the senior roller proclaims a democracy and work goes to hell. There's Flamenco dancing, bursts of opera, quarrels, reconciliations, revelations and a bungled sexual encounter; but Miguel has lost his sweetheart to America, there's a storm in Havana, and tobacco is the last thing on his mind.

Steven Knight's play The President of an Empty Room was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2005.
