Can a son atone for his father's sins? Rudi has grown up in Paraguay, blissfully ignorant of his father's past. When a friend reveals the awful truth, Rudi flees his family and attempts to invent a new life. As he struggles to atone for his father's appalling acts, the past catches up with him.

EAST OF BERLIN stars Diana Donnelly, Paul Dunn and Brendan Gall. The Creative Team is led by Director Alisa Palmer and features Set and Costume Designer Camellia Koo, Lighting Designer Michael Walton, Associate Lighting Designer Gavin McDonald, Sound Designer John Gzowski, Tarragon Resident Director Rose Plotek and Stage Manager Leigh McClymont.
