    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.

    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.

    Best Seats

    SeatPlan Recommends: Sit in the middle of the Stalls for the most immersive experience with this particular play. Avoid seats at the very ends of rows, as these can be angled toward the stage, which cuts off some of the action.

    Sitting in the higher tiers is a good option if you remain central and toward the front, however these seats are usually a better option for musicals rather than plays.
