PaperBack (03 Jun 2009)

A play by Bryony Lavery in collaboration with Sound&Fury.

A submarine is on patrol in the arctic. The crew sleep, eat, drill, long for word from home, and silently shadow their target. Their lives, at once extraordinary and mundane, are shattered by a global crisis from which uniquely personal stories emerge.

Inspired by the Russian submarine disaster of August 2000, in collaboration with Sound&Fury, Bryony Lavery's play imagines the life of submariners, deep below the icy seas on the fraying front line of the cold war. Kursk was iproduced at the Young Vic Theatre 2009 and revived to great acclaim in 2010.
