A courtroom drama where audience members play the part of the jury is set to be staged in a secret location in Kent.
It has taken more than a year for managers at the Trinity Theatre to put together the production of Terror.
Written by Ferdinand von Schirach, it has been performed in the Lyric Hammersmith in 2017.
It tells of a hijacked plane heading towards a packed football stadium. Ignoring orders to the contrary, a fighter pilot shoots the plane down – killing 164 people to save 70,000.
Put on trial and charged with murder, the audience, who will sit in a courtroom as the jury, will get to decide the verdict.
Trinity Theatre artistic director John Martin said: “This project has been over 18 months in the planning, and I am delighted to be able to bring this terrific play to Tunbridge Wells in an innovative and exciting setting. Theatre should stimulate debate and discussion and this is exactly what this play should do.”
There will be just 48 seats for each performance and the venue will remain secret for ticket holders until after they have booked.
It will run from Tuesday, May 28 to Sunday, June 16.
