Birmingham Repertory Theatre Birmingham West Midlands
Four teenagers take a day trip to Cologne. By the end of the night, their world has been turned upside down. One is dead, two are in police custody, and the fourth is recovering from stab wounds. And it is the job of Kobert, a police psychologist, to find out what has happened. Lutz Hübner’s hard-hitting play about sexual attitudes, provocation and intercultural confusion, is based on the true story of an honour killing. Originally produced in Germany in 2005 this play was subsequently banned in 2006. With the ban now lifted this new production marks the UK premiere. Supported by the Goethe Institute. Performers Naoufal Ousellam, Simon Silva, Rebecca Loudon, Jessica Clark, Tim Wyatt.
