The Events
The only means I have are art or violence.

Written by David Greig

Directed by Susannah Martin

June 4 

After a horrific event, we always ask "why?" In the aftermath of a tragedy, one survivor searches herself and the world for unfathomable rationales. If we are able to understand, can we move forward and even prevent future tragedies? With a delicate balance of humor, pathos and the power of a live choir, The Events explores the strength of our humanity when confronted by cruelty. Featuring a different choir every night. See the full list.

The Events was a New York Times Critic's Pick: "a solemn, searching and ultimately very moving play about a faith-shattering act of violence."

"unnervingly, dangerously, immediate." —San Fransciso Examiner

"provocative, forceful . . . superb performances" —Berkeleyside

"finely nuanced and intense" —Mercury News

"thrilling production" —KQED
