Fatima Bhutto and Gary Younge in Conversation

09 September 2019

A co-production with The National Theatre

What does it mean to be a citizen? With nationalist politics on the rise around the world, what do we really mean when we speak of extremism and how are these narratives shaped by race and identity? In an age obsessed with “post-truth” where do the true deceptions lie?

Fatima Bhutto is the bestselling author of Songs of Blood and Sword, the memoir about her father’s life and assassination, and the highly praised The Runaways, an unflinching and moving portrait of radicalism, belonging and Muslim identity. She will take the stage for an evening of conversation and debate with Gary Younge, editor-at-large at The Guardian and author most recently of Another Day in the Death of America.
