Description

Capturing the imagination of the world in August 2000, The Kursk recreates the disappearance and the rescue of the Russian nuclear submarine. In the claustrophobic world of the trapped submariners, circumstances seem dire. For the proud and obstinate Admiral Popov, the rescue effort is urgent. And for the families of the sailors whose fates hang in the balance, news is anxiously awaited.

Reviews

"Sasha Janowicz’s script is lean, immediate, and its love focus engages us. This production of The Kursk is an example of what a dramatic medium theatre can be. Simply put, this is theatre at its very best."

Stage Whispers

"....possibly one of the best pieces of Independent Theatre I have had the pleasure of seeing... a fast paced piece that will have you on the edge of your seat."
