Berliners- Nick and Tom

$30.00 - $38.00

12 - 16 Sep | 1 hour 20 minutes Flight Path Theatre

This irreverent comedy duo returns as two men separated by class, history and the Berlin Wall dividing their apartment in two. “Their chemistry on stage is palpable” - Sydney Scoop

Nick and Tom couldn’t be less alike if they tried.

Nick (Nick Harriott) lives in West Germany. He loves bold modern art, loud rock and roll, and the spills and thrills of unregulated capitalism. Tom (Tom Waddell) lives in East Germany. He loves borscht, books, and silence. It’s a shame then that they are next-door neighbours in adjoining apartments—divided cleanly down the middle by the Berlin Wall.

This alternate-history comedy charts the rise of a new friendship, set against the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Witness a new political epic that will redefine the genre, featuring old man make-up, Soviet dubstep and a life-size replica of the Berlin Wall. This is a must-see performance for comedy-lovers and history-buffs alike, filled with thought-provoking questions like “wait, did that actually happen?” and thought-provoking answers like, “no.”

Berliners is the latest play by writer-performers Nick Harriott and Tom Waddell. Nick and Tom’s most recent tour of Australia culminated in a sold-out run at the Sydney Comedy Festival, they were grand finalists in the 2023 Improv Comedy Cagefight, and they are currently in negotiation with Netflix to get their accounts reactivated.

Now, they arrive at Flight Path Theatre to premiere their most daring work to date. Join them for an unforgettable evening that will make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings, and convince you that love can, in fact, conquer wall.
