Pi Theatre and the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival present the English Canadian premiere of David Greig’s daring play The Events, January 17 – 28, 2018 at the Russian Hall (600 Campbell Avenue). Inspired by the 2011 attacks in Utøya, Norway, the healing powers of love, forgiveness, and faith are thrown into doubt in one of the decade’s most incendiary and important works. Directed by Richard Wolfe with musical score by John Browne, the story follows Claire, a female priest and choirmaster, who has recently experienced a faith-shattering act of terror. As she struggles to understand the event that changed her life, we are asked to decide whether love and hope can survive in the wake of an inexplicable act of violence. The Events showcases Metro Vancouver’s vibrant community choir scene with a different choral group performing onstage each night, providing a consoling presence in the face of adversity.

Tickets from $26. For further info, visit: pitheatre.com
