The EventsDavid Greig's "quiet, moving drama", chosen by Guardian theatre critic Lyn Gardner as the number 1 play of 2013, returns to the Young Vic this summer. Giving "a thoughtful and bruisingly honest attempt to understand the repercussions of a mass shooting" (The Guardian), The Events asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. The 90-minute play, which won the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe First Award, features an on-stage choir and a soaring soundtrack. Set in an unnamed village where a young gunman walked into a local choir rehearsal and opened fire, the drama is a tale of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable. "It's probably the finest, most important thing Greig has written", says Dominic Cavendish in the Telegraph. For a prolific playwright, noted for averaging almost five new plays per year, and whose recent projects include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, that's high praise indeed.

 

About The Young Vic

Knocked together out of breeze blocks for a minimal budget in 1970, Lawrence Olivier's experimental theatre was intended to last for five years, and provide an inspiration for the new generation of performers. But this was an experiment that worked and, years later, the Young Vic remains south London's premier venue for the contemporary, the shocking, the controversial, and the bizarre.
