Edinburgh play focuses on Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s jail term as new decision due

Scotland Correspondent

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s release on Thursday after two and half years in a Tehran prison surprised her family and allowed her to be reunited with her daughter Gabriela.

Her temporary freedom comes as her story is made into a play, which is currently showing at the Edinburgh Fringe. The production team worked closely with her family, including husband Richard when writing the drama, which is updated as her story progresses.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe will find out tomorrow if she will have to go back to prison after being allowed out for three days.

Our Scotland correspondent Ciaran Jenkins has this.
