“The theatrical sensation of the Edinburgh Festival” - Nicholas De Jongh, Evening Standard

A famous author comes face-to-face with America’s most notorious terrorist. One has a story to write, the other a story to tell. As the clock ticks on death row, the bond between the two men grows.


A haunting imagination of Gore Vidal’s relationship with Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh in a scorching new play from one of America's greatest living writers.

Edmund White is described by Le Monde as “the most accomplished American novelist since Henry James”. His books include A Boy’s Own Story, The Beautiful Room Is Empty, and My Lives. Terre Haute is his first new play for more than a decade.
