Important information:

This show contains descriptions of violence, haze, a period of darkness and scenes some may find upsetting.

At the Colorado premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, a community was torn apart by gun violence. But while their hearts were broken, their community was not.

This hard-hitting verbatim piece follows the survivors remarkable true testimonies of the infamous Batman Shootings as they attempt to respond and recover from the tragedy.

This is their story and every word is real.

Returning from their critically acclaimed sell-out Edinburgh Premiere, The Pleasance is proud to present Screen 9 as this year's recipient of the Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve.

Praise for Screen 9:

"Simple, direct, incisive and involving" (The Observer)

"What makes it such a powerful piece of theatre, is it spotlight the survivors and not the shooter" (The Stage)

"'Screen 9’ might just be the highlight of the fringe, purely due to the cast’s stellar performances and Kate Barton’s ingenious direction and stunningly written, devastating script." (Theatre Scotland)
