An adaptation of Sound&Fury’s award-winning play Kursk created in collaboration with film director Amanda Boyle.
(with subtitles in English)
Inspired by the tragic event in 2000 that saw the Russian submarine Kursk suffer a huge explosion, and its 118 crew perish.
Set on board a Royal Navy hunter-killer submarine, sent to spy on the Russian Kursk on its final fateful mission, the story follows five British crew who live and serve under extreme pressure.
We witness their anguish, fears, hopes and predicaments.
In a world of secrecy and divided loyalty, the aftermath of the Cold War is set against a personal story of friendship and loss.
Created following extensive research, Kursk gives an authentic glimpse into life on board a submarine, and the lives of the men who serve beneath the seas.
Listen to a series of interviews about the making of Kursk.
This is a work of fiction. All names, characters and dialogue are products of the writer’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
