Berlin Love Tour in Birmingham

A walking tour with stops off the city centre to picture historic locations in Berlin. The focus on eras of the dictatorships - fascist and communist - gave a sombre backdrop to the foreground story of a souring love affair between the new arrival in Berlin and her German boyfriend.
All this was performed essentially by one actress, Hilary O'Shaughnessy, with a singer-songwriter, Greg Milenr, accompanying between monologues.
Fascinating to find the German capital pictured as those of us in the 'tour' stood at various locations off Broad Street, ending on the roof of a multi-story carpark. for more info..
