The healing powers of love, forgiveness and faith are thrown into doubt in one of the decade’s most incendiary and important new plays, from multi-award-winning playwright David Greig.
The Events follows Claire, a female priest and choirmaster, who has recently experienced a faith-shattering act of terror. As she struggles to understand the event that changed her life, we’re asked to decide whether goodness and love can survive in the wake of an inexplicable act of violence. The Events showcases BC’s vibrant community choir scene with a different choir performing onstage each night.
