A forgotten country. A shrouded glade. A buried past.

Zara is on the run. Aliide wants to stay hidden. Deep in an Estonian forest their two worlds collide. Aliide offers her sanctuary but not safety. Together their survival depends on the one thing that they’ve learnt to keep secret: the truth.

Moving back and forth across time, Sofi Oksanen’s startling play and award-winning novel reveals the indelible imprint of Soviet occupation on the Estonian people in a gripping story of misguided love, hope and betrayal to rival Ian McEwan’s Atonement and Bernhard Schlink’s The Reader.

An international sensation, this is the first time Purge has been seen on stage in the UK.
