The Events

From Pi Theatre comes this incendiary exploration of a tragic contemporary phenomenon. Written by David Greig, The Events features Claire, a priest and choir leader who has survived a mass shooting. Shattered and bereft, she looks for answers that may lead to some kind of affirmation of hope and faith. In this soul-searching work, the presence of the choir represents the most beautiful aspects of our shared humanity.

Pi draws on community choirs from the Metro Vancouver area for participation; each performance, a different choral group shares the stage with the show’s two actors. This work of art about a community torn apart is an act of community engagement, prompting discussion as well as catharsis. In its compassion, its inclusivity and its spirit of inquiry, The Events is an act of resistance—an act of love.

[A] solemn, searching and ultimately very moving play… there is real transcendence in this melding of separate voices.
