The Events by David Greig

"A tight story about the scars after Utoya. (...) It's not often you become ´horror movie scared' when going to the theatre. Like when your breath gets stuck in your throat and you flinch at the slightest sound. Rarely have I seen such a short play, just over an hour, with such density ." Göteborgs Posten

GEST are delighted to present the Swedish premiere of the award-winning and critically acclaimed play The Events by David Greig and music by John Browne.
8 April- 30 April at Gothenburg English Studio Theatre
4 May - 14 May at Kulturhuset, Stadsteatern Stockholm
