Description

1983. East Germany. In the terrifying, all-seeing Stasi police state, one sixteen-year-old schoolgirl's quest for justice turns her friends into spies, her family into suspects and pushes her over the Berlin Wall. Years later, the regime has fallen but can Miriam go back and discover the truth? Based on a true story, this exciting new electronic rock musical from award-winning, young company Eastern Edge is a fast-paced tale of rebellion, love and independence in a country divided.

This musical was one of the highlights of the festival for us. The talent and energy of the young cast showcased in a brand new musical. The story was told emotionally through great choreography and lyrics I'd like to listen to again. The music and story reminded me of my life as a youngster in West Germany in the eighties with family in the East. Every movement was carefully designed to help us understand the story and the range of emotions in the youngsters reflected those of young people wherever they grow up.
If you get a chance go to see this show.

What a fantastic musical! The choreography especially blew me away - I can't believe how talented every member of the cast is! I loved the music too - such beautiful voices!

What a GORGEOUS show! The fact that each and every performer is a true Triple Threat is clearly showcased throughout this fantastic new musical by the beautiful and striking choreography, musical direction and direction. The show delves straight into Eastern Berlin and the audience is entirely captured by the smooth storytelling and made to feel every emotion that crosses each character’s path. My mum beside me reminisced about hearing it all on the news in her late teens and I was thrown into a world I had not before known or understood but which is now irreversibly important in my mind.

Theatre at its finest. I really hope this can go further.

The music itself has wonderful touches of 1980s electronica, and this show is well worth your time! A lovingly created piece of a disturbing time in history.

Berlin Girl is described as a story of love and rebellion which follows 16-year-old Berlin school girl Miranda as she gets caught up in the totalitarian regime of East Berlin in the 1960s. The subject matter is fairly intriguing, especially considering the questionable choice to perform it in the rock musical genre.

The Edinburgh Fringe is a great place to see new work by young writers and up and coming performers, and Berlin Girl is a good example of that. It is only on for six performances so those interested will need to get there quickly.
