Joanna Murray-Smith is one of Australia’s most celebrated playwrights, captivating audiences from Melbourne to Broadway and the West End. Her riveting NEXT STAGE commission for MTC is a romantic thriller that pits the devastating shadow of history against the dazzling promise of true love.

When Tom, an Australian abroad, meets Charlotte in a Berlin bar, sparks fly and they head back to her loft apartment. As they drink, talk and flirt late into the night, they begin to unearth startling secrets that can no longer be ignored...

Directed by Iain Sinclair, and starring Grace Cummings and Michael Wahr, this world premiere production is brought to the stage with 'humour, emotional intelligence and downright sexy stage chemistry' (The Age).

Berlin was commissioned through MTC’s NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program with the support of our Playwrights Giving Circle Donors, The Ian Potter Foundation, Naomi Milgrom Foundation, The Myer Foundation, Malcolm Robertson Foundation and The University of Melbourne.
