Casting news

This is what a border is. A magic money line.

Something changed today. The trains are no longer stopping at the border and no one knows why. Plus, the stationmaster has two new arrivals to deal with. Arrivals that will divide the local population.

This prophetic early masterpiece from David Greig explores our complex relationship to Europe – as a continent, a refuge, an idea.
