Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes by Jordan Tannahill
Image by Cameron Grant
Based on real world events
On the Death Strip of the Berlin Wall in 1962, from gunshot to final breath, an adolescent Peter Fechter hears the lives of family, friends, and strangers unfolding in the city around him – dozens of voices converging in the moment of his death and illuminating his decision to risk it all for love.
Based on real world events, the Berlin Wall looms large as Carlo Hengstler brings this heart breaking story of family ties, oppression, liberty, and cloistered sexuality, to the stage with a wry humour, difficult truths and unexpected joy.
