Can love can keep two people together when the stakes are raised? How ‘progressive’ are people really, when they’re confronted with difficult choices? How far are people willing to go to understand people with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds?

The Incident explores the realities of living in a different culture, far from family, support, and tradition. It takes a closer at who we allow to belong in our societies and what it means to be an ambitious, non-white woman in a mostly white male dominated society.



The Incident was created collaboratively between Swedish writer Joakim Daun and American Dramaturge Zoë Guzy-Sprague.

Directed by acclaimed Tonderai Munyevu and Arne Pohlmeier at Two Gents Production and starring Swedish Actor David Weiss and British actress Cassandra Hercules.
