About the Show Less...

Gary's not stupid; he just sees the world differently... Read More >

Though Gary may appear stupid, he’s not; he just dares to view the world differently. Wherever he is, the school or the estate, he provokes without intent. When yet another act of violence unsettles those around him, Gary must take the blame.

Raw, angry and urgent, Osama the Hero is written by Dennis Kelly, who is among Britain’s hottest emerging writers.

Osama the Hero runs in rep with A Single Act.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
