The Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at The Royal Court Theatre

Play by by Robin Soans. Directed by Max Stafford-Clark with designs by Jonathan Fensom, lighting by Johanna Town and sound by Gareth Fry.

"I looked round the room, and I thought,
I'm the only person in this room that hasn't killed anyone."

"I think talking to terrorists is the only way to beat them.
I can't understand why Tony didn't understand that."

To find out what makes ordinary people do extreme things, the writer, director and actors interviewed those from around the world who have been affected by or involved in terrorism. This play is about their experiences. From peacemakers, journalists and hostages to those who crossed the line these are their stories.

Cast includes Chipo Chung, Christopher Ettridge, Alexander Hanson, Lloyd Hutchinson, Catherine Russell, Christopher Ryman and June Watson.

Robin Soans' previous work includes A State Affair (Out of Joint/Soho) and The Arab Israeli Cookbook (The Gate).

Out of Joint's recent productions include Macbeth and The Permanent Way by David Hare (Out of Joint/NT).
