About the show

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.

Guilty or not guilty, you decide. Terror sees the audience enter the courtroom to hear evidence and come up with their own conclusion. When a hijacked plane begins to plummet toward a packed football stadium, a fighter pilot shoots it down against orders, killing 164 people but saving 70,000.

Now the pilot is on trial for murder, and it’s the audience’s decision to determine his fate. Is he guilty? Stirring debate across the globe, Terror has seen opposing results in different cultures and countries.

Casting includes Tanya Moodie as the Presiding Judge, Emma Fielding as Prosecuting Counsel, John Lightbody as Christian Lauterbach, Forbes Masson as Defence Counsel Biegler, Shanaya Rafaat as Franziska Meiser and Ashley Zhangazha as the pilot, Lars Koch.

Directed by the Lyric Hammersmith’s Artistic Director Sean Holmes, Terror features set design by Olivier Award-winner Anna Fleischle, costume design by Loren Elstein, lighting by Joshua Carr and sound by Nick Manning.

German writer and lawyer Ferdinand von Schirach’s play has been performed around the world, in Japan, Denmark, Slovenia, Switzerland and Hungary. Terror played at the Lyric Hammersmith for a limited season from June 14th to July 15th 2017.

A moral dilemma, well presented in an interesting way. The interactive voting for the verdict gives it an edge.
