“The Events” by David Grieg won the Award at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2013. The play, stunningly directed by Ramin Gray, juxtaposes beauty and healing with an act of senseless violence. David incorporates a local choir whose soaring voices rebuke the madness and ugliness of a mass shooting, without finding easy explanations for the cause. “The Events” is a production of The Actors’ Touring Company.
“The Events” then ran at the Young Vic in London and was named one of the “Ten Best Plays of 2013” in The Guardian.
“The Events” will be shown at New York Theatre Workshop in February 2015. We can’t wait to share “The Events” with New York!
