The Kursk is a taut and thrilling play that recreates the disappearance and the rescue of the Russian nuclear submarine that captured the imagination of the world in August 2000. Follow the claustrophobic world of the trapped submariners, the urgency of the rescue led by the proud and obstinate Admiral Popov, and meet the wives and friends of the sailors who wait and watch as the rescuers fight against the impossible while the fate of their loved ones hangs in the balance.
