For some time now I have reflected on the events.
A forest rings with the sound of gunfire. Screams echo through corridors. At Claire’s choir rehearsal, something terrible happens…
David Greig’s daring new play is an exploration of community and its capacity to re-adjust. Questioning just how far forgiveness will stretch in the wake of tragedy, The Events brings to light our destructive but inescapable desire to fathom the unfathomable.
One of Britain’s most prolific and adventurous contemporary playwrights, David Greig has garnered international acclaim with recent work including Midsummer, Dunsinane, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart and the new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Premiering at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this production of his latest play by Actors’ Touring Company features a soaring soundtrack brought to life at each performance by a local choir.
Contains some strong language.
