“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”


The world’s most notorious terrorist tells his remarkable and provocative story.

After a critically acclaimed USA tour, this incendiary show provides a fresh perspective; creating a space for dialogue within the unthinkable.

Bin Laden questions its audience. It sensitively asks them to re-examine their thoughts and feelings on the Bin Laden myth and so look again at the causes and possible solutions to the Middle Eastern conflict. Bin Laden always provokes passionate debate in the bar afterward.
