complex, fascinating... masterly... one of the most fascinating shows I have seen in an age

Financial Times on The Believers Are But Brothers

Sheffield Theatres’ Associate Director Javaad Alipoor presents his 2017 Scotsman Fringe First award winning, 2018 Stage Award nominated and Total Theatre Award nominated show.

An electronic maze of fantasists, meme culture, 4chan, the alt-right and ISIS, we live in a time where old orders are collapsing: from the postcolonial nation states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. Through it all, tech savvy and extremist groups rip up political certainties. Amidst this, a generation of young men find themselves burning with resentment.

This bold one-man show explores the smoke and mirrors world of online extremism, anonymity and hate speech.

Running time: About 1 hour and 10 minutes (no interval)
