David Baxter - 24 June 2009:
Kursk was not on my radar (or sonar) until I read a 5-star review in the Telegraph but I'm delighted I made the effort to get to the Young Vic. The black box Maria studio has been transformed into an astonishingly realistic Royal Navy submarine which you sit or stand inside as the play unfolds around you. Bryony Lavery's script brilliantly captures the chlaustrophobic atmosphere and male banter as well as the monotony and occasional moments of fear and near-panic as events unfold. Given that the tirle refers to a Russian submarine which sank in Arctic water what I felt was missiing was more of a sense of the horror of what it must have been like on the Kursk, other than a few moments of blackness and muffled Russian. An extraordinary achievement but Kursk didn't quite live up to it's title....
