A powerfully immersive theatrical experience inspired by the Russian submarine disaster of August 2000. Read More >

After a triumphant run at the Young Vic and in Edinburgh in 2009, Kursk returns for a limited season.

Nominated for an Evening Standard Award for Best Design in 2009, Kursk is a powerfully immersive theatrical experience inspired by the Russian submarine disaster of August 2000.

Pioneering theatre company Sound&Fury and playwright Bryony Lavery recreate the life of submariners, deep below the icy seas on the fraying front line of the Cold War.

In consultation with former submariners and naval psychologists, Kursk sees Sound&Fury create an environment of submarine warfare, transporting the audience to a confined underwater world of command and control, secrecy and codes, fear and camaraderie.

Kursk playwright Lavery won the TMA Best New Play Award for previous work Frozen and collected the 2008 Whiting Award for Stockholm.

Kursk is recommended for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
