“My name is Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Aboud bin Laden al Qahtani and tonight, ladies and gentleman, 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.
Following a critically acclaimed USA tour this incendiary, intelligent debut from Royal Exchange Supported Artists, Knaïve Theatre, provides fresh perspective; creating within the unthinkable a space for debate and dialogue.
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 provokes and facilitates passionate debate after every show.
After every show the director, Tyrell, facilitates a debate, which makes BIN LADEN: THE ONE MAN SHOW an evening of two equally important halves.
The goal is to ask the audience to re-examine the narrative they’ve been told on the Bin Laden story and to look again at how that affects their perception of the conflict in the Middle East.
“The workings of great theatre minds in the making...this isn't just inspired, it's brave.”
