Berlin at Southbank Theatre
Coming to Southbank Theatre in April and May is Berlin, a nail-biting new play that weaves a game of cat and mouse into the universal tale of youthful passion.
Celebrated playwright Joanna Murray-Smith’s production tells the story of Tom, an Australian abroad who meets Charlotte, a local Berliner, in a bar. Sparks fly and Charlotte invites Tom back to spend the night at her place. But as the young couple navigate the ritual of seduction, their mutual desire gives way to difficult secrets and questions. Berlin asks: can true love stand a chance against the shadow of history?
Directed by Iain Sinclair (A View From the Bridge), starring Grace Cummings (Prehistoric) and Michael Wahr (Shakespeare in Love), and commissioned through MTC’s Next Stage writers’ program, Berlin promises to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
