Written by David Greig / Translated by Oda Radoor / Directed by Ramin Gray

Screams echo through corridors. A forest echoes with the sound of gunfire. At Claire’s choir rehearsal, something terrible happens.

David Greig’s daring new play asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. Featuring local choirs and a soaring soundtrack, The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable.

Greig’s recent plays include Midsummer, Dunsinane, and The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart and the new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Actors Touring Company presents the best of international contemporary theatre. Recent productions include The Golden Dragon, Wild Swans, Crave and Illusions.

A co-production of Actors Touring Company, London, Brageteatret, Drammen, Schauspielhaus Vienna and the Young Vic Theatre, London.
