Talking to Terrorists

By Robin Soans.

A play based on interviews with people involved in terrorism around the globe, and those seeking to counter it. The writer, director and actors involved carried out the interviews to try to discover what makes ordinary people do extreme things. Plus contributions from peacemakers, politicians, warriors, journalists, hostages and psychologists.
