A Theatre 4.669 production
Written by Stéphanie Turple
Performed by Michael Hanrahan and Jon Dickey
Directed by Kevin Orr
A World Premiere.
November 9, 1989, Invalidenstrasse border crossing, East Berlin. Two hapless border guards are caught flat footed in the middle of life altering events caused by a monumental bureaucratic blunder. Un-Countried is the bizarre tale of miscommunication, accidents and happenstance that caused and characterized the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Nothing is as simple as it seems. Truth has no currency.
