Gladiator Games by Tanika Gupta
On the eve of his release from Feltham Young Offenders Institution Zahid Mubarek, a young British Asian man, was attacked by his cellmate. One week later he died of his injuries. Was he sharing a cell with a known racist? This new play traces his family's pursuit of the truth. Based on interviews and accounts given to the Feltham Inquiry, one of Britain's pre-eminent writers examines the incompetence of the official response to Zahid Mubarek's death. Gladiator Games opens at the Crucible Theatre Studio, Sheffield in October 2005.
