The Kursk

On 12 August 2000, a Russian nuclear attack submarine mysteriously vanished in the Barents Sea during a naval exercise. When the sub is discovered 100 metres beneath the sea, Northern Fleet Commander Admiral Popov is under extreme pressure. If he doesn’t act quickly, there’ll be a nuclear disaster in the Atlantic.

This extraordinary play reveals the true story behind the ill-fated Kursk submarine. Australian Playwright Sasha Janowicz travelled to Russia to seek out the truth behind the controversy. He was sent an anonymous package - a submariner captain’s uniform complete with medals. The Russians donated their time, artefacts and pieces of uniforms for the project. It was clear that the true story of The Kursk had to be told.

We meet the sailors, their wives, their friends and their families who wait as the rescuers fight against the impossible. Meanwhile the lives of their loved ones hang in the balance.

The Kursk is a thriller, a mystery and a love story.
