Award-winning Scottish playwright David Greig's The Events follows a community's search for compassion, peace and understanding in the wake of unthinkable violence, asking: how far can forgiveness stretch in the face of atrocity?

This brilliantly inventive piece showcases a different local community choir at each performance. The hit of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Events garnered five-star reviews before transferring to sell-out seasons around Europe and America. Featuring renowned star of stage and screen Catherine McClements (Rush, Water Rats), The Events tells of tragedy, obsession and our destructive desire to fathom the unfathomable.
