In rehearsal: Terror

Published 31 May 2017

Dilemmas can be the spice of life – but some are more weighty than others. In the Lyric Hammersmith’s thrilling courtroom drama, you’ll decide whether to condemn or reprieve.

And if, like us, your biggest dilemma so far today was what to eat for breakfast, then you’ll need to see Terror, the UK premiere of the electrifying play by Ferdinand von Schirach, directed by Artistic Director Sean Holmes and designed by Olivier Award-winner Anna Fleischle.

Guilty. Not Guilty. You Decide. Enter the courtroom. Hear the evidence. Make your judgement.

A hijacked plane is heading towards a packed football stadium. Ignoring orders to the contrary a fighter pilot shoots the plane down killing 164 people to save 70,000. Put on trial and charged with murder, the fate of the pilot is in the audience’s hands.

Terror is a worldwide smash-hit that has been stirring debate across the globe and providing opposing results in different countries and cultures. It plays from 14 June – 15 July 2017 at the Lyric Hammersmith.
