Inspired by the tragic mass killing that took place in Norway in 2011, The Events challenges its audience with questions of tolerance and understanding in the midst of coping with the aftermath of such a traumatic event.
Winner of the 2013 Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, The Events is a co-production of Actors Touring Company (London), Brageteatret (Drammen), Schauspielhaus (Vienna) and the Young Vic Theatre (London).
The British Council proudly supports a series of public discussions surrounding the production.
