‘Tea With Terrorists’ is the one-woman show starring Sameena Zehra that explains how she had some very polite afternoon tea with some terrorists. The story begins with her move from London to Kashmir after her “emotionally incontinent” parents separated. Sameena introduced a family of strong women that curse almost everyone they meet, incompetent staff that no one has the heart to fire and an uncle who is out the day some terrorists knock on the door. Samenna finds humour in almost every strand of her life so far and tells her story fantastically. I was left wanting the next chapter.
