BERLIN LOVE TOUR
A show by Playgroup
Welcome to Berlin!
Walk through this famously divided city and journey into the depths of the human heart. Visit the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate and the notorious site of Hitler's bunker. Hear stories of tragedy and lost love. Your experienced and charming guide will reveal the secrets of this city of angels and ruins, and may have a few stories of her own to tell along the way.
Dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes, and bring an open heart.
BERLIN LOVE TOUR is a guided tour of Berlin with another city standing in for Berlin: an outdoor theatre performance about monuments and memory, the contradictory impulses to remember and forget, how places are charged with the events that happened there, and how we carry around all the places we've been inside us.
Irish Theatre Magazine
"distils complex ideas into moving motifs... Berlin and love are beautifully, even painfully evoked."
The Irish Times
"This beautiful two hour show made me use my head, use my heart and connected me to my surroundings and my fellow paying punters in a way I haven't in theatre before"
