Edinburgh Festival: New drama "Kursk" set on a RN submarine

Re: Edinburgh Festival: New drama "Kursk" set on a RN submar

In my opinion the Kursk incident was tragic. A recent event with families coming to terms with their grief. Although on national TV in almost graphic detail it was news. I would not like to see it in a Fringe theatre which is supposed to be about entertainment. Unless they all get rescued and no mention of the Kursk is made.

Being as its in Edinburgh, should'nt be a problem finding a doctor to inject the lady at the press conference. The junkie is bound to nick the needle.

General question about deep sea recovery/rescue. I assume that when various countries build their boats they have a standard universal rescue connection. Is that the case? One of those questions I wished I had asked before. :wink:

Of course they do, which is why the DSRV seat has a CE mark stamped on it to show compliance, Gerber.

I worked on a (losing) bid for the NATO Submarine Rescue System, and the rescue vessel used a flexible collar that sealed to the DISSUB's hull: so provided the casing wasn't too damaged or obstructed, you could mate up to just about anyone's hatch. It's not that there's a "standard connection", rather that the rescue craft are designed to cope with what they find.

It says the story is told from the perspective of a British Submarine 'keeping tabs' on the Russians. This would indicate that it is not a fictional story about a British boat sinking in a similar manner to the Kursk. Looks like a an interesting play none the less. Shame the OOW hasn't ironed his shirt, scruffy cnut.

Edited to add: 'A time to die: The Kursk Disaster' is a cracking read if anyone is looking for a good book. If someone wants my copy send me a PM and make a £5 donation to Hols4Heroes, I will send it to you.

P-O-L

I suspect that there may be two very different plays portraying the Kursk tragedy - one is an Australian production - the Janowicz one - featuring Russian characters - the second, the one which is on at Edinburgh, is an entirely British production and is set on a Royal Navy submarine.
