It’s getting dark. A night train is moving through Europe. On board the train is Miriam, two night passengers and the usher, who is also conducting the train. They are all going the same way. But as the night gets closer, their journey takes an unexpected direction.
On an empty field in no-man’s-land hundreds of people stand waiting. Most of them are carrying bags. Some of them are carrying children. They stand in square formations, 40 people per square. They are also on their way. They are waiting for a night train.
Night Passage is a story that originates from a true event that happened in Macedonia in 2015. What happens to the person whose worldview is controlled by suspicion? How long does it take for fear to take hold? When it’s dark, and we don’t know where to go, what are we willing to pay to be able to do the right thing?
A tale of suspicion, fear and moral courage.

The play is performed in three different languages and is therefore also subtitled to the audience main language.
