This is what a border is. A magic money line.

Something changed today. The trains are no longer stopping at the station on the border and no one knows why. Plus, the stationmaster suddenly has two new arrivals to deal with. Arrivals that will divide the local population.

This prophetic early masterpiece from David Greig explores our complex relationship to Europe – as a continent, a refuge, an idea.

Michael Longhurst directs the 25th anniversary revival as his inaugural production as Artistic Director of the Donmar.

This production is supported by the John Browne Charitable Trust

DONMAR PODCAST:

Literary Manager Clare Slater talks to Michael Longhurst and the cast Europe

Literary Manager Clare Slater speaks to Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst and members of the Europe company about this timely revival of David Greig's play.


Jeremy Bowen talks to the cast of Europe

As well as exploring the text, working on scenes, having costume fittings and practising their movement, the cast have also spent time researching the play's context and the events happening when the play was written.

The Yugoslav Wars were at their height at the time and last week BBC Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen visited the company to tell them more about his experience of reporting from the Balkans in the 1990s. Get a taste of what they learnt in this excerpt from the session.
