The international hit drama by DAVID GREIG

12–22 July 2017
Moonah Arts Centre

Director Robert Jarman (The Tempest), and actors Jane Longhurst (Grounded, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf) and Tasmanian-turned-international star Rob Mallett (Singin’ in the Rain, Les Miserables) join three of Hobart’s leading community choirs in an rich blend of theatre and music, THE EVENTS.

“A mighty play” - The Guardian

Claire runs a community choir. There’s room for everyone. Then a young man walks in and opens fire with a gun. Claire’s community, and the ideals that formed it, are blown apart.

In an era of Port Arthur, Martin Place, Bourke Street, Manchester and too many such bewildering events, Claire asks: How do we live together knowing it can all come apart in a moment? And – Why? 

Confronting one of the great dilemmas of our time, THE EVENTS is defiant, heartbreaking, optimistic and magnificent.
