“An intricate theatrical achievement.”
-Liz Nicholls, 12th Night

1962, East Berlin. A teenage boy lies in the Death Strip with a fatal bullet wound to the pelvis after an attempt to escape to the West. For 59 minutes, his body remains where it fell – in full view of Western onlookers and Eastern guards. As he dies, Peter’s hearing intensifies and the voices of the people he loves come back to him in his final hour.

Inspired by the death of the real Peter Fechter, one of the first people killed while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall, Tannahill’s play is an ode to risk and love in the face of oppression.

Across this city and farther, maybe everywhere, people are destroying themselves for love.
