Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571251307, Paperback)

In two contrasted readings for the stage, David Hare visits a place where a famous wall has come down, and a place where a wall is going up. 

BERLIN
For his whole adult life, David Hare has been visiting the city that so many young people regard as the most exciting in Europe. But there’s something in Berlin’s elusive character that makes him feel he’s always missing the point. Now, to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the reunification, he offers a meditation on Germany’s restored capital—both what it represents in European history and the peculiar part it has played in his own life.

WALL
The Israel/Palestine security fence will one day stretch 486 miles, from one end of Israel to the other. It will be four times as long as the Berlin Wall, and in places twice as high. In this second monologue, the playwright recalls his trips to both Israel and the Palestinian territory and offers a history of the wall’s building, an exploration of the philosophy behind it, and a personal account of those who live on either side.
