The Calligrapher @ Edinburgh Fringe (Cancelled)

    00:00, Fri 6th August 2021 - Mon 30th August 2021 Venue to be confirmed
    Summer Vacation

    Locked away in Baghdad Mosque is a beautifully intricate Quran, complete with 6,000 verses of elaborate calligraphy and 600 pages of decorative motifs – a marvel in artistry that would surely be celebrated by Muslims and artists around the world if it were not written in Saddam Hussein’s blood. Now its artist lives in the US, where he restores old paintings for a living, but in every step, he’s still followed by the walking, talking, blood-drenched Quran that has haunted him since.
