Gothenburg English Studio Theatre presents the Swedish premiere of the award-winning and critically acclaimed The Events by David Greig. Music by John Browne.

Claire, a liberal church minister, ran a community choir in a small seaside town. ”…a choir that brought together vulnerable people, old people, asylum seekers, immigrant men, young mums and so on – it was a – the idea was – you can imagine. ” Claire desperately searches for understanding as to why a boy with a gun walked in to her choir rehearsal, resulting in devastating consequences. She becomes obsessed with the boy and the reasons for his actions. She looks for answers among the politicians that the boy associates himself with, his father, old classmates and, in the end, the boy himself. It’s a journey that takes her to the edge of reason, politics and faith.
