Explosive Osama Bin Laden Show Comes to Halifax, as part of its 2017 National Tour


Thursday 21 September, 8pm

Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax


The world’s most notorious terrorist tells his story in BIN LADEN: THE ONE MAN SHOW a remarkable, provocative and multi-award-winning production from Knaïve Theatre. But there’s a twist,  Bin Laden is 28 years old, White British and charming as cream teas in summer. After a critically acclaimed and highly successful American Tour and 2017 Edinburgh Festival run, this ‘must-see’ production comes to Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax on Thursday 21 September, 8pm.


This production includes a clever mix of political theatre and historical insight, told with a cheeky sense of humour that will consistently surprise audiences. The production is also set to infuriate and impress audiences.


With populist rhetoric playing an ever-increasing role in Western politics, Knaïve Theatre’s Tyrrell Jones and Sam Redway pry apart what it is that draws us to follow demagogues, asking if the world’s most wanted terrorist might have been more persuasive than we ever imagined. They ask audiences to re-examine their own information and prejudices from a naïve perspective, just as the company have.


Knaïve Theatre are now Supported Artists at the Exchange and have redeveloped the show with the help of the theatre’s creative team for the company’s first national tour.


Having provoked important and timely debate surrounding Middle East conflict and the War On Terror internationally, they will now bring that discussion to a national audience. Though they expected this story would become less relevant, current global tensions and recent events have galvanised an ever-increasing appetite for the debate they inspire.


“Tonight, ladies and gentlemen,

I am going to show you how to change the world”
