Arriving in London after a hugely successful run in New York and the Edinburgh Festival, A British Subject is an extraordinary true-life tale of international politics and the media colliding with justice, civil liberties and ultimately, faith.

At the age of 18, Mirza Tahir Hussain, a British Subject, arrived in Pakistan. 24 hours later a taxi driver was dead and Tahir was tried for his murder. Condemned to hang in the Criminal Court, he spent 18 years on Death Row. Don Mackay of the Daily Mirror was the only journalist to visit him in that time.
