    Ferdinand von Schirach’s drama Terror played its UK premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, directed by Sean Holmes. Taking place in a courtroom, the audience must decide the fate of a pilot who shot down a hijacked plane before it plummeted into a packed football stadium. Guilty or not guilty? You decide.

    Ferdinand von Schirach’s courtroom drama Terror receives its UK premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith. Playing for a limited season, Terror is the worldwide phenomenon that has been performed across the globe. A pertinent examination of terrorism, the play is translated by David Tushingham.
