I found you. You're here. And I was over there. But now I'm over here. I'm here. You're my brother. I love you. 

When Franz's mother escaped to the West with one of her identical twin boys, she left the other behind. Now, 25 years later, Karl crosses the border in search of his other half. As history takes an unexpected turn, the brothers must struggle to reconnect.

Mark Ravenhill's (Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat, Shopping and Fucking) visceral new play examines the hungers released when two countries, separated by a common language, meet again.


East meets west, things get messy ... A combination of elegance and extremity, high concept and intense humanity... so-simple-its-brilliant... fluid and natural... I loved it.
