Two Destination Language
In the same year that Europe marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the UK is due to exit the EU. As we approach that new potential turning point in European history, Two Destination Language’s new show places itself between east and west, here and there, the UK and the rest of Europe.
1989: The Berlin Wall splits open; a young girl looks forward to life beyond Communism; a couple unravel; and 80’s TV permeates everything. 2019: Britain prepares to leave the EU while Europe celebrates 30 years since the end of the Cold War. A story of love, breaking free, and Europe, from multi-award-winning Two Destination Language, Fallen Fruit foregrounds a unique migrant voice born in communist Bulgaria.
“As she sweats with the effort of breaking down walls, her charming smile traded for a grimace of determination, Fallen Fruit reveals the process of change for what it is: hard work.” The Guardian
“thoughtful stuff about political walls and personal barriers” Lyn Gardner
