The Events: Actors Touring Company

Oct 1 - Oct 5: Abbey Theatre, on the Peacock stage

Winner of a 2013 Scotsman Fringe First and the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award.

The Events Dublin Theatre Festival 2013

“…probably the finest, most important thing Greig has written.” ★★★★★ The Daily Telegraph

“A mighty play.” ★★★★ The Guardian

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 Scotland'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 Festival Fringe, his latest play features a soaring soundtrack brought to life at each performance by a local choir.

Contains some strong language.

Presented by Dublin Theatre Festival in association with the Abbey Theatre.

With the support of British Council.
