Talking to Terrorists is for anyone who has ever wanted to ask why. Can you imagine anything that mattered so much you'd blow up a pub full of people? Strap explosives to your body? Hold a petrified child at gunpoint? Until we understand how ordinary people can do these things we won't stop them. Regarded as the most important new play of 2005 by many of London's critics, Talking to Terrorists -- through the means of verbatim theatre -- recounts the experiences of peacemakers, journalists, hostages and those who crossed the line.
