“My name is Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Aboud bin Laden al Qatani and tonight, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to show you how to change the world.”
Is there anyone in modern history who is as hated as Osama bin Laden? His achievements as the leader of Al Qaeda changed the world in which we live. From increased airport security to constant surveillance, the 9/11 terror attacks did more than kill a huge number of innocent people, they ushered in a time in which we’ve begun to value security over freedom.
At Canberra Theatre Centre from 26– 30 March, Bin Laden: The One Man Show asks its audience to walk into the theatre with an open mind and a willingness to listen.
If they can do that, they have the chance to meet one of the world’s most notorious figures, not as a monster, but as a person.
Bin Laden: The One Man Show questions its audience and provokes passionate discussion.
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.
