Following a sold-out seven-week run at our Mercer Street theater and the recent announcement of Mr. Wright’s Pulitzer Prize for The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11, Culture Project presents an encore special engagement of My Trip To Al-Qaeda.
Lawrence Wright – arguably the man who knows more about Al-Qaeda than any other American – uses facts, figures, and PowerPoint to bring his universally acclaimed, Pulitzer-Prize winning The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 (a national best seller and one of the The New York Times Book Review’s “Top 10 Books of 2006”) to the stage in My Trip to Al-Qaeda.

Mr. Wright is currently working on a script about John O’Neill, the former head of the FBI’s office of counter-terrorism in New York, who died on 9/11. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
In addition to the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction, The Looming Tower has also garnered Mr. Wright The Los Angeles Times Book Prize for History and The J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize.
Critical acclaim for My Trip To Al-Qaeda:
“An engaging theatrical seminar on the rise of Islamic terrorism… his firsthand testimony will be hard to shake from the memory.” — The New York Times
“An intensely engaging presentation with an enormously knowledgeable authority on Al-Qaeda.” — The New York Sun
“Wright has a compelling perspective on an important issue of our time and shows how America’s policy of torture is self-defeating, shocking, immoral, and plays into the hands of the people we’re fighting. Worthwhile for anybody with a political conscience.” — Theatermania.com
“A master class that raises fundamental questions: What is Islam, and what is America?” — NPR
