The best play about BREXIT was written in Scotland in 1994. (It's also about a few other places.) In a time when words and ideas are divisive, come join the feast that is David Greig's powerful play about two refugees who change a small town. The town is already reeling from layoffs at the local factory, and because the trains that link all of Europe no longer stop in the town's station. Everyone in town, old and new, must decide where home is and what they will do to find, make, or keep it. Come see the terror and triumph of worlds colliding in a play that Arts Desk called a?oeTimely, tender, brutal, and brilliant.a??
