Details

AN EMPTY RAILWAY STATION IN AN UNNAMED BORDER TOWN, AT THE HEART OF EUROPE.

Trains from every corner of the continent thunder through without ever stopping but what happens to the people left behind? Written at the height of the Balkan war, the last major conflict on European soil, David Greig’s 1994 play has achieved the status of a modern classic. Locals and ‘foreigners’ collide as people passing through mix with those who’ve always been there. In a fading town people struggle to find purpose, but humour, beauty and humanity remain in the power of human connection and friendship. As our own relationship with the rest of our continent becomes more and more politicised, Europe asks us to interrogate our sense of belonging to a place and an idea which we are at the heart of and simultaneously separating ourselves from.
