The world premiere of award-winning playwright Ken Urban’s Sense of an Ending, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, marks the 21st anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. This compelling political thriller asks if forgiveness is possible in a situation where truth is never simple.

Charles, a New York Times journalist, arrives in Rwanda for an exclusive interview with two Hutu nuns. Charged with war crimes during the 1994 genocide, the nuns must convince the world of their innocence or face a lifetime in prison. When an unknown survivor contradicts their story, Charles must choose which version of the truth to believe.

Urban's Sense of an Ending shines a light on journalistic truth and morality amid the atrocity of the Rwandan genocide. This is the first of Urban’s plays to be presented in Europe; the script won the Best New Play award at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Producer, Jessica Campbell comments, Ken's compelling script explores so many questions: how can a journalist balance his loyalty to the people he meets and his duty to report the truth? How can a nation ever heal after such devastating loss of life? We're excited - if somewhat daunted - to be exploring these questions in this world premiere. With an all-black cast, this shockingly powerful piece of writing, based on a true story, is a must-see at Theatre503.
