Claire, the protagonist in David Greig’s play The Events (2013), has recently survived unimaginable tragedy. 1 As a liberal Christian priest, she has been running a multicultural choir, a project designed to welcome people in her country and help them integrate through vocal exchange and the resonantly affective immersion of choral singing. However, a fanatic young boy, obsessed with returning to an assumed state of ethnic purity within the national territory and advocating protection against the influx of foreigners, commits massacre, shooting down or injuring most members of the choir. Claire is the only one surviving this atrocity physically unaffected.
