Charles, a discredited New York Times journalist, arrives in Rwanda for an exclusive interview with two Hutu nuns

Charged with alleged war crimes committed during the 1994 genocide, the nuns must convince the world of their innocence or face a lifetime in prison

When an unknown Tutsi survivor contradicts their story, Charles must choose which version of the truth to tell

Based on real events, Sense of an Ending shines a light on questions of guilt, complicity, and faith in the face of extreme violence


"There’s a lot to admire in Mr. Urban’s script. It argues persuasively for empathy and forgiveness as means of recovering from trauma. It is fast-paced, fluid and taut” ~ NY Times

“A superb play about the Rwandan genocide… so intense that, in between each scene, you can hear the audience gulp for air” ~ Time Out London

“Cogent [and] troubling…the [play’s] striking final moments demonstrate that this playwright’s sense of an ending is perfectly intact” ~ Village Voice
