Bin Laden
Knaïve Theatre (UK) & Seymour Centre present

Bin Laden: The One Man Show

3 - 6 Apr 2019

“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”


One man, one monster, one unforgettable act of violence. This is the story of the world’s most notorious terrorist. The man who shook the world.


Following a critically acclaimed USA tour and smash hit Edinburgh Fringe run, this intelligent and incendiary debut
from Knaïve Theatre (UK) provides fresh perspective and creates a space for debate and dialogue within the unthinkable.


“The must-see event of the 2016 San Diego International Fringe Festival. It should be required viewing, a different perspective.”
San Diego Theatre Reviews


“The workings of great theatre minds in the making… this isn’t just inspired, it’s brave.”
