How many times do I need to explain? How many times do I need to repeat? Trust no one but yourself. Head in the sand, bum in the air! People are people’s enemy.
The war might be over but there are demonstrations in the streets, inflation is out of control, families are rationing food, politicians’ wives are publishing self-help books and kids are left unsupervised in their concrete playgrounds.
At the back of an apartment block, four children recreate the world around them: a world of mum, dad, son, daughter and the family dog. This is the game of Family Stories: Belgrade, a violently skewed family portrait of a civilized nation about to implode.
Ride On’s acclaimed team bring their latest theatrical and musical feast to Griffin Stablemates.
