Bin Laden: The One Man Show has very much become an evening of two halves. After every show the director, Tyrell, facilitates the debate. Bin Laden questions its audience. It sensitively ask 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 passionate discussion.
Performed by Sam Redway, directed by Tyrrell Jones and written by both of them.
“… A deeply uncomfortable and deeply dramatic piece of magicianship …” The Spectator - Lloyd Evans
