Description

Radicalisation, disenfranchisement and the rock band Queen. Dean joined the army, 'Danny' joined ISIS. One's from London; the other, Leeds. Bismillah! is their hour together in an Iraqi cell. 'A Black comedy of the highest order' ***** (TheReviewsHub.com). Discussing Islamophobia, Wetherspoons and the increasing price of a standard meal deal, which circles an awful truth – they just want to go home. Fresh from a national tour, Pleasance run and sell-out 2018 VAULT Festival run, the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award-shortlisted show returns, with its hilarious and compassionate look at modern Britain.
