Route 28 is a celebration of Europe and the EU, on the Saturday closest to Europe Day (9 May), a date chosen to mark the final victory over fascism, in May 1945.
The tour celebrates the echoes of other European countries in Vienna – a kind of continental odyssey, inside one complex and varied city.
The UK remains a part of the EU until 2019, and space and place’s Eugene Quinn will be looking at Britain’s relationship with comedy.
Since June 23rd 2016, Eugene has been thinking about what Shakespeare would make of #Brexit. It would be a great play – a mixture of comedy and tragedy. It’s easy to imagine Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage as Shakespeare fools. And the lies, manipulation, rumours, misuse of power (and one politician stabbed to death in the street) make Brexit perfect material for a sharp Shakespearean tragedy.
