Bismillah! (An Isis Tragicomedy)
Dean joined the Army, 'Danny' joined the Islamic State. One's from Leeds, the other's from London. Brought together in a holding cell in Northern Iraq, as captive and volatile guard. They discuss the North/South divide, reminisce about dead-end jobs they couldn't escape, lampoon the outrageous ever increasing price of a standard airport meal deal - all the while circling an awful terrifying truth - that both of them just want to go home. Bismillah!
is a hilarious, heart-breaking and compassionate contribution to the vital discussion around the experiences of disenfranchised young people in modern Britain.
