David Greig's new play, a Fringe First winner at Edinburgh this year, transfers to the Young Vic
Opened 9 Oct 2013
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Screams echo through corridors. A forest echoes with the sound of gunfire. Terrified children are led across a playground. At Claire's choir rehearsal, one of the singers is missing. David Greig's urgent 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.
