The Eventsour co-production with ATC, is taking Edinburgh Fringe by storm!

As well as some fantastic reviews, The Events has won a Fringe First award!

David Grieg’s daring new play tells the story of  Claire, a priest who survives an atrocity and sets out on a quest to answer the most difficult question of all; ‘Why?’ It’s a journey that takes her to the edge of reason, science, politics and faith.

Here’s what the critics thought….
