We follow Swedish couple Tomas and Ebba, who head to the Alps for picture perfect ski trip with their two children. But just as they sit down to enjoy an alfresco lunch with panoramic views of the mountains, snow starts tumbling down in a (controlled) avalanche. No injuries occur – there's no disaster so to speak – yet this seemingly innocuous event leaves the stability of family life in disrepair.
As Tomas and Ebba's relationship grows increasingly tense, Force Majeure offers a biting social commentary, delving into notions of patriarchy and masculinity with dark and understated humour.
New head of the Donmar Michael Longhurst directs the new stage version of the story. Further details are still to be announced but we look forward to seeing how the sublime Alpine scenery comes to life on the Covent Garden stage.
