Brisbane Theatre: "The Kursk" at La Boite, a nuclear-sub disaster-thriller

La Boite theatre is putting on the play "The Kursk", about the real-life disaster that happened in August 2000 when the Russian nuclear-powered submarine Kursk sank in the Barents Sea, near Norway and Russia.

According to Critical Stages,

We meet Admiral Popov, a proud and obstinate man, deeply distrustful of the foreigners who have come to help. We meet the sailors, their wives, their friends and their families who wait as the rescuers’ fight against the impossible while the fate of their loved ones hangs in the balance.

Popov has to try and save the trapped submariners while also making sure a nuclear disaster doesn't hit the Barents Sea - a disaster which would affect the whole North Atlantic Ocean.

Tickets are $39 adults, $33 concession and $26 for people 30 and under. The play runs from Tuesday September 1st to Saturday September 12th - click here to see performance details and to book tickets online - or you can book tickets by calling 07 3007 8600.
