Full-length play - December 2022 tour


"I am from Germany. I am from the UK.

I am from nowhere.

This is what I remember."

Verständnis [Understanding] is a moving and fresh new play that explores national identity, the state of being ‘in-between’, and the importance of understanding one another and is written in both English and German with English subtitles.
