Theatre Lunatico presents the west coast premier of Bryony Lavery’s KURSK, an immersive, intense, and gripping account of the 2000 sinking of the Russian nuclear submarine. Kursk, or K-141, depicts the perspective of a nearby British submarine as the crew grapples with how to address the impending situation, one that is complicated with fraught political overtones. Juxtaposed with the realities of the daily life of submariners, the play is a poignantly personal story set against the backdrop of an international political crisis, and a devastating naval disaster. Originally written for five men, Theatre Lunatico’s production will be an all female ensemble.
