Bismillah! (An Isis Tragicomedy)
A story of disenfranchisement, social alienation, prejudice, radicalisation and the rock band Queen.
Dean joined the Army, 'Danny' joined the Islamic State. One’s from Leeds, the other's from London.
Brought together in a holding cell in Northern Iraq, as captive and volatile guard. They discuss the North/South divide, reminisce about dead-end jobs they couldn't escape, lampoon the outrageous ever increasing price of a standard airport meal deal - all the while circling an awful terrifying truth – that both of them just want to go home.
Bismillah! is fresh from a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the 2018 Vault Festival, and was shortlisted for an Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award at Edinburgh in 2015.
