Afghanistan is Not Funny by Henry Naylor

A close-shave with a landmine, menaced by a warlord & abducted by the Mujahideen: this is the extraordinary, true story of a British comedian & photographer in war-torn Afghanistan... a trip which changed both their lives & their art. 

Performed by Naylor & featuring the photography of Sam Maynard, this docu-play takes us to the start of a modern tragedy. Directed by Martha Lott & Darren Lee Cole, returning after smash-hit runs at the off-broadway Soho Playhouse, NY. & Arcola Theatre UK, with an extraordinary 29 five & four-star reviews
