“I looked around the room and I thought, I’m the only person in this room that hasn’t killed anyone.”
What makes ordinary people do extreme things? Talking to Terrorists is a verbatim play taken from actual interviews with people from around the world who have been involved in terrorism. Peacemakers, journalists and hostages. Significant figures from recent history. And those who have crossed the line. Their stories take us from Africa, Israel, Turkey, Iraq and Ireland to the heart of the British Establishment.
“…one of the sanest, most thought provoking and intelligent discussions of terrorism in any media since 9/11.” – Culture Wars
