Inspired by the path to Afghanistan, well trodden down the ages whether by Western merchants, missionaries, Hippies or soldiers, There Shall Be Fireworks unearths a startling true story from a two hundred-year-old cemetery in Kabul known as the Kabre Gora (‘the graveyard of foreigners’).

Martin Bonger (Fatman, Around the World in 80 Days) plays an American stockbroker turned statesman, thwarted in one wildly ambitious bid to change the world for good. With composition by Jennifer Bell (recently featured on Radio 4’s Word of Mouth), it is a haunting new show about being possessed by an idea.
