Together with the Actors Touring Company, David Greig will bring his production of The Events to the Lincoln School of Performing Arts on March 28-29 as part of a performing arts festival dedicated to his award-winning works.
The Events explores the ways in which communities heal after traumatic violence. The production features a different local choir at each performance, with the Lincoln Cathedral Choir taking to the stage this week. Musicians will perform an extensive soundtrack, from How Great Thou Art to Dizzee Rascal, yet will be unaware of events unfolding, allowing the audience to share their genuine reactions to a shocking and humorous script. The Events is on as part of the David Greig Festival, which is ongoing to March 29.
On March 27 The Cosmonaut's Last Message to the Woman He Once Loved in the Former Soviet Union, a production directed by last year's winner of the Lincoln School of Performing Arts Student of the Year Award, Lucy Barrett will be performed. On March 29 the festival will culminate in a one-day symposium bringing together scholars, theatre practitioners and students to discuss David Greig. David Greig will also appear in conversation with Professor Dan Rebellato, from Royal Holloway, University of London.
The symposium will be followed by the final performance of The Events and a post-show discussion. Find out more at www.lpac.co.uk
