"Back there, back then, I had it all!"

In 1989, as the Berlin Wall splits open, a young girl looks forward to life beyond communism, a couple unravels, and 80s TV permeates everything.

A story of love, breaking free and Europe, from Total Theatre Award winners Two Destination Language.

In 2019, Britain leaves the EU while across Europe people celebrate the 30th anniversary of the end of the Cold War. Fallen Fruit foregrounds a unique migrant voice born in communist Bulgaria.

“a serious look at what it means to be free ... worth fighting for.”
