Columbus, OH and Philadelphia, PA

The British Council is proud to support the tour of The Events to The Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH and the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, PA this autumn. The Events is a new play by renowned Scottish writer, David Greig and commissioned by Actors Touring Company, featuring a local choir that premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2013. Dealing with the major issues of community, understanding of the other, and how to cope in the wake of major traumatic events, this is a major new work. 

The performance will run at The Wexner Center for the Arts from September 30-October 5 at various times. See their website for ticket information.

The performance will run at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts from October 7-19 at various times. See their website for ticket information.

In addition to performances, we've worked with our partners to create bespoke public panels to expand the discourse on these issues as they are relevant to each community. We hope you will join the conversation:
