It's a journey that takes her to the edge of reason, science, politics and faith.David Greig's daring new play explores our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable and asks how far forgiveness can stretch in the face of brutality.The Events was commissioned and first produced by Actors Touring Company in co-production with the Young Vic Theatre, Schauspielhaus Wein and Brageteatret. It premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2013.

Love The Events!
SpinnyReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 7, 2014
I would love to see this played out on stage. Full of meaning, not spoon fed to the audience. Short and therefore holds more impact. Modern. Good and quick read, but you know it must be seen to be truly understood and appreciated.

Seamlessly good scenes, powerful charactersReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 3, 2015
This is a play that everyone should see. Seamlessly good scenes, powerful characters, and really good songs using local choirs. The ending is hauntingly good.
