This is an evening of two contrasting solo monologues.
For his whole adult life, David Hare has been visiting the city which so many young people regard as the most exciting in Europe. But there's something in Berlin's elusive character that makes him feel he's always missing the point. Now, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall, he reads a 55-minute meditation about Germany's restored capital - both what it represents in European history, and the peculiar part it has played in his own life.
The Israeli/Palestine security fence will one day stretch 486 miles, from one end of Israel to the other. It will be four times as long as the Berlin wall, and in places twice as high. In this second monologue, Hare offers a history of the wall's building, an exploration of the philosophy behind it and a personal account of those who live on either side.
