Twenty-five years since it premiered, Europe feels especially pertinent. Set in the disused railway station of a small, unnamed border town, the play charts the arrival of two foreigners. They have come in search of safety, but they find different reactions from the locals: some long to travel and expand their own borders, while others see the newcomers as a threat.
Charting the fluidity of identity, both personal and national, Greig draws audiences into romance and violence against a backdrop of trains that trundle past, but never stop.
Longhurst has assembled a cast of rising stars for this revival, with familiar faces including Billy Howe (who recently impressed in ITV drama MotherFatherSon and in the film adaptation of On Chesil Beach), Faye Marsay (Game of Thrones) and Shane Zaza (Happy Valley, Press).
