BWW Review: TERROR, Lyric Hammersmith
by Emma Watkins - June 24, 2017

With searingly topical timing, this summer sees the Lyric Hammersmith presenting the UK premiere of Terror, a tense courtroom drama by German lawyer and writer Ferdinand von Schirach which has become something of a worldwide hit.
