What turns young men, viewing pages on the internet, into radical soldiers ready to terrorize people they’ve never met? That question is at the heart of the fascinating docu-play The Believers Are But Brothers. A multimedia tour-de-force, which includes messages sent to audience members via What’s App, the show looks at three different men whose resentment of the world transforms them into soldiers committing digital hate crimes. Written and performed by Javaad Alipoor, the show is a chilling and unforgettable theatrical experience.
