'A mighty play about what it is that makes us human' No.1 best theatre 2013, The Guardian
Screams echo through corridors. The sound of gunfire rings out. 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 a local choir, Lewes based The Paddock Singers, and a soaring soundtrack, The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable.
Greig’s recent plays include Midsummer (Brighton Festival 2011), Dunsinane, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart (Brighton Festival 2012) and the new West End 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.
