“I hate Christopher Robin. He’s everything I loathe about England. Sentimental. Sanctimonious.   Above all, false. Childhood was never like that.”

The Berlin Wall has fallen. Reparations are being made to Jewish families. Germany has reunited. And in Belsize Park, Otto Huberman is listening to recordings of himself playing Brahms, when he is interrupted by a visitor who will turn his life upside down.

Funny, provocative, and deeply moving, this new play explores what it means to be a ‘citizen of nowhere’.

Judith Burnley has written best-selling novels including The Wife and Unrepentant Women.

Alice Hamilton has directed acclaimed premieres of the plays of Barney Norris including Eventide and Visitors, and revivals including German Skerries at the Orange Tree Theatre.
