Afghanistan is Not Funny

Author(s): Henry Naylor
Company: Redbeard Theatre
Running time: 1h 10min approx

A close-shave with a landmine, menaced by a warlord and abducted by the Mujahideen: this is the extraordinary, true story of a British comedian and photographer in war-torn Afghanistan.

In 2002, whilst researching a comedy, triple Fringe First winner Henry Naylor and two-time Scottish Feature Photographer of the Year Sam Maynard went to the Afghan Warzone…

…it was a trip which changed both their lives and their art.

Performed by Naylor himself, in front of Maynard’s pictures, this docu-play goes back to the start of a modern tragedy.
