    About

    Co-directed by Javaad Alipoor & Kirsty Housley

    Writer and theatre maker Javaad Alipoor presents his 2017 Scotsman Fringe First Award-winning show exploring the smoke and mirrors world of online extremism, anonymity and hate speech.

    We live in a time where old orders are collapsing, from the post-colonial nation states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. Through it all, tech savvy and extremist groups rip through twentieth century political certainties.

    Amidst this, a generation of young men find themselves burning with resentment; without the money, power and sex they think they deserve. This crisis of masculinity leads them into an online world of fantasy, violence and reality.

    Writer and theatre maker Javaad Alipoor spent time in this digital realm, exploring the blurry and complex world of extremists, spies, journalists and fantasists. This bold one-man show weaves together their stories.
