We're in this together

Claire, a liberal priest and choir director, regularly meets with her group of singers at the local town hall. But when a troubled young man crashes their rehearsal, this community - and the ideals that formed it - are instantly torn apart. In the aftermath, Claire embarks on a journey to answer the most difficult question of all: ‘Why?’

David Greig's daring new play asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. Featuring a different community choir at each performance and a soaring soundtrack, The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable.

An Open Stage production.

Contains mature language and themes

A poignant look at human tragedy.
