Description
"Fragile" is set in present-day London, mainly in Michi's bar - described as 'one of those underground clubs that hosts people from countries where non-smokers are not to be trusted' and partly in a refugee hostel run by Gayle, a New Zealander. We meet Mila, from Croatia, who sings in the bar and is having an affair with Erik, a damaged but macho Norwegian foreign correspondent who has seen action in the Bosnia. Marko, from Serbia, has got a job at Michi's because his father was a big wheel in Serbia, probably caught up in the atrocities. Tiasha has been sex-trafficked all over Europe - and has encountered Erik on the way. Her arrival tips the precarious balance established between these various misfits: Gayle and Marko get together; Michi starts procuring for Tiasha: Mila returns to Croatia - and Erik dies..."Fragile" is an involving and unusual first play by a writer who herself hails from Eastern Europe. It is full of insights into this society of 'temporary people', a new substratum of life in this country that is increasingly visible on the surface.
