World Premiere

The Hunt

By Thomas Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm | adapted by David Farr

Directed By Rupert Goold

production information

We are a small community. The happiness of our children is everything. Our hopes and dreams rest in these tiny souls. 

In a small town in northern Denmark, the children celebrate Harvest Festival.

In the forest by the water the men of the lodge stand naked in the cold. This is their country. This is their song.

In the shadows a lonely child gives a strange man her heart.

The hunt begins.

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold directs The Hunt by David Farr (The Night Manager, Spooks), based on the critically acclaimed Danish film thriller Jagten, by Thomas Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm.
