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

Casting announced for David Greig’s Europe at the Donmar Warehouse
Monday, May 13, 2019

Full casting has been announced for the first production in Michael Longhurst’s tenure as artistic director at the Donmar Warehouse: David Greig’s Europe. Directed by Longhurst, the play is set at a train station in a dilapidated Eastern Europe town as a train approached carrying a number of passengers including a dishonest businessman, and two refugees seeking shelter. This new Donmar production comes 25 years after the play was first performed at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 1994. It was most recently revived in Leeds at West Yorkshire Playhouse last summer.
