Jihad Jane

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

In March 2010, two American women, including one who named herself 'jihad Jane', were arrested in a number of high profile arrests, which were trumpeted by the US attorney's office as 'the new face on terror'.

Facing huge jail sentences, the two women pleaded guilty but now for the first time ever, with unprecedented access, 'Jihad Jane' tells the story of the most absurd terror cell ever to come together.

'Jihad Jane' is about the Internet and the online world and the damaged people who made plans to murder a Swedish cartoonist but reality comes crashing in, when they actually meet for the first time.

The film 'Jihad Jane' captures post 9-11 America and what emerges is a touching and haunting portrait of not only a damaged terror cell but the country and world that they emerged from.
