Paradise of the Assassins


'This vital multicultural hub in south London... raises important questions about the use of spiritual doctrine as a spur to assassination, and the creation of illusory paradises as a bait for the young.' Michael Billington, The Guardian

'parallels with current extremism are all too apparent, with very strong performances... Skye Hallam and Asif Khan forge a volatile chemistry’ The Stage

'A superb piece… revealing analysis of terrorist extremism’’   The Upcoming 

'Well worth going to see.’ Essential Surrey

‘First-rate cast as is Anthony Clark’s direction' London Theatre 1

‘Very strong message’ BBC Arabic Service
