Talking to Terrorists was commissioned by the Royal Court and Out of Joint. The writer, director and actors interviewed people from around the world who had been touched by terrorism. They wanted to know what makes ordinary people do extreme things. As well as those who crossed the line, they met peacemakers, warriors, journalists, hostages and psychologists. Their stories take us from Uganda, Israel, Turkey, Iraq, Ireland, and to the heart of the British establishment.
Every actor will play multiple roles, playing real people and speaking their actual words. Dialects will be explored during the rehearsal process, but at a minimum, actors should be comfortable with using British and Irish dialects.
