There Has Possibly Been an Incident

Chris Thorpe


When life offers you a choice between heroism and compromise - what happens? Sometimes planes don’t land the way they’re supposed to. The people of a country have had enough of their leaders, but those leaders have to be replaced with something.  A person steps out of a crowd and, for a moment, becomes more than human. A man walks into the lobby of a building and brings death with him to prove his point.

‘Utterly compelling. It gnaws at our ideas of heroism and compromise, individual and collective action, and those small acts of choosing and not choosing that either pass unnoticed or send ripples around the world.’ Guardian

'Hypnotic. An astonishingly sharp piece.' The Stage

'From electrifying writing and performances to serious ethical confrontation in one hour... both profoundly satisfying and deeply unsettling at once.' What's On Stage

'Chris Thorpe’s new poetry play is an oblique, unsettling work that feels like it’s come quietly out of nowhere to crawl almost to the heart of the current political theatre zeitgeist.' Time Out

'The poetry and gorgeous images entangled in There Has Possibly Been An Incident also encourage us to think differently, to pull out important, impossible details and make them into something bigger.' A Younger Theatre

‘An incredibly powerful bit of work, but also brilliantly detailed’ Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods
