This autumn, the world will mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union’s Iron Curtain. To commemorate this event, Burning Coal Theatre Company will present, for the first time anywhere, all three of David Edgar’s magnificent Iron Curtain Trilogy. The three plays will run in repertory, so that it will be possible to see all three in a single weekend.  NOTE: The Iron Curtain Trilogy will be performed at 117 S. West Street in downtown Raleigh.  Then Burning Coal will be performing the trilogy at the Cockpit in London in November.
