BY Maria de Marco | 09-May-2017
By Robin Soans. By arrangement with The Agency (London) Ltd. Australian Premiere Season. Talking to Terrorists is a play commissioned by the Royal Court and Out of Joint in 2005. The writer Robin Soans, director Max Stafford – Clark, and actors interviewed people from around the world who have been affected by or involved in terrorism. They wanted to know what makes ordinary people do extreme things, often at a shockingly young age. The people they met, several of whom have asked not to be named, spoke candidly and often bravely. Peacemakers, journalists and hostages. Significant figures from recent history. And those who have crossed the line. Their stories take us from Africa, Israel, Turkey, Iraq and Ireland to the heart of the British Establishment.
