“An unsettling explanation of the process of extreme radicalism, creating a tingling sense - rare in fringe shows – of theatre-goers being led in an uncomfortable direction.”
Mark Lawson - The Guardian

“Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to show you how to change the world”

The world’s most notorious terrorist tells his remarkable, provocative, multi-award-winning story.

After a critically acclaimed USA tour and smash hit Edinburgh Fringe run, this incendiary, intelligent show from Royal Exchange Supported Artists and Knaïve Theatre provides a fresh perspective; creating a space for dialogue within the unthinkable.

Bin Laden questions its audience. It sensitively asks them to re-examine their thoughts and feelings on the Bin Laden myth and so look again at the causes and possible solutions to the Middle Eastern conflict. Bin Laden always provokes passionate debate in the bar afterwards.
