SHORT + SWEET THEATRE
“The Apple” takes us through the experience of 4 travellers going through customs and border control of an international airport. Based on real stories, this play shows a situation of a kind that none of us would like to go through. With a sense of humour, it reflects about themes like racial profiling and border control restrictions.
