Terrorism is a concept that, as its varied rhetorical employments throughout history prove, has long evaded semantic consistency or stable meaning. With special attention to the events leading up to 9/11 and the corresponding public discourse of the "War on Terror," this study will demonstrate how art-- in particular the socially engaged dramatic texts coming from Great Britain-- addresses this conceptual behemoth, ultimately "deconstructing" how it is a Western neoliberal ideology conceives of itself in relation to the Other.
