Written and performed by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright, the gripping, highly personal narrative My Trip to Al-Qaeda details the rise of radical Islam. Based on his recent bestseller The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 and originally presented as part of the 2006 New Yorker Festival, Wright's compelling production directed by Gregory Mosher brings to life the personalities behind the terror--and the toll the attacks of 9/11 have taken on America's civil liberties. National Public Radio calls it "an emotional journey," while the New York Times extols it as "engaging."
FROM THE WASHINGTON POST 9/25/07:
"REMARKABLE!... A JOURNEY WORTH TAKING.
Count yourself among the fortunate if you've scored tickets to Lawrence Wright's exquisitely observed travelogue into the dark, twisted heart of Middle East extremism."
