This world premier of the Out of Joint and the Royal Court production of this verbatim theatre style is hard hitting, raw and controversial.

All the material is based on interviews with the perpetrators and victims of terrorism, politicians and the military involved.

The play can only serve to enlighten the individual about the thinking of such people as we wonder why they do not perceive the evil and carnage they cause. The portrayal of the aspects of terrorism ranging from taking of hostages in Lebanon to the IRA Brighton bombing is thought-provoking and revealing. You see both sides of the argument and could even argue justification, despite the graphic detail of torture and murder.

The scene with the Brighton bomber describing planting the bomb running alongside Lord and Lady Tebbitt coping with the injuries and lifestyle today is revealing.

The play is not necessarily enjoyable but it is an amazing and vivid insight into the violent side of human behaviour that has always been with us. The only hope of a solution is, as the title says, talking.
