It's 1968. The Cold War is at its height. Cousins Paul and Freddie Metz want to escape East Berlin; the only things in their way are a 20 metre ‘death strip’, hundreds of landmines and the East German secret police. With live musical accompaniment and based on the real-life escape stories of the men and women who made it to the other side,Tunnels tells of their struggle to burrow under the Berlin Wall. With strong resonance in the UK today, Tunnels is a show about love, loyalty, family, nationhood and of course... digging.
Written by Oliver Yellop, directed by Colin Ellwood, performed by Oliver Yellop and Lewis Bruniges. Live music written and performed by Benji Hooper.
Tunnels, presented by Further Theatre, returns to London after a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the 2021 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
