My Trip To Al-Qaeda
Written and presented by Lawrence Wright
Directed by Gregory Mosher
Lawrence Wright – arguably the man who knows more about Al-Qaeda than any other American – brings his universally acclaimed The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 (a national best seller and one of the The New York Times Book Review’s “Top 10 Books of 2006”) to the stage in My Trip To Al-Qaeda.
This unique production uses facts, figures, and PowerPoint to weave the story of Al-Qaeda’s rise into a compelling, dramatic, and unquestionably timely story.
This strictly limited engagement, directed by Gregory Mosher (A Streetcar Named Desire, Speed the Plow), begins at Thursday, March 1st, and will run through Saturday, April 14th.
Wright utilizes never-before-seen evidence, transcripts, and court documents to illustrate how this organization fomented and implemented their attack on America… and became a defining force in America’s foreign policy and national psyche.
Wright’s work is the result of interviews with over six hundred people (including members of Al-Qaeda) throughout the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan, as well as New York and Washington.
