“I’ve been thinking I might go berserk”

The Events by David Greig Music by John Browne

When Claire, a priest, and leader of a local community choir survives an atrocity she sets out to answer the most difficult question of all: ‘Why?’ It’s a journey that takes her to the edge of reason, science, politics and faith. David Greig’s daring play explores our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable and asks how far forgiveness and empathy can stretch in the face of brutality. With a score that incorporates traditional hymns, gospel and rave music, The Events tells of a community’s attempts to heal, move on, and find reasons to sing again.
