Goodbye to Berlin: A Cabaret was a radical adaptation/deconstruction of Christopher Isherwood‘s book and the plays, movies and musicals it inspired.

Telling a story cobbled together from half a century of various versions of the tale, the production was performed by a small group of actor-musicians in an intimate low-ceilinged studio space masquerading as an illicit club.

You can download the production’s complete text, which I edited together, by clicking here; or download the performance programme by clicking here.
