The Chance Of The Hunter theatre company represents Hungary this year at the Voila! Europe multilingual theatre festival supported by the Liszt Institute London.

Voila! Europe is a multilingual theatre festival produced by The Cockpit. Their curated programme of cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary performance opens a trusted portal to new European theatre for independent artists and adventurous audiences. The festival is live on stage in London and live online everywhere, gathering together a welcoming community of the culturally curious.

This years' selected Hungarian play is '999' produced and presented by Chance Of The Hunter. 

Donald Tenborogh has decided to give up nature documentaries and join a hibernation programme to wake up in a better future. In his dreams, he meets his fears and desires: a polar bear dancing in a nightclub, an advertisement for the latest Galvanised Cylinder Bunker, and an unborn child who wants to live. 999 is an apocalyptic dark comedy from Chance of the Hunter, making its international debut.
The show is recommended for anyone above the age of 16 who connects to the following topics: climate crises, climate anxiety, and environmental crises. The Company considers these issues as one of the most urgent questions of the global society. This is the main reason they started to work on their devised theatre performance and searching ways to present it abroad also.

The play will be on stage on the 11th & 12th November 7:00pm.
