With english surtitles

Richard III

William Shakespeare
Directed by: Jan Bosse
Next performances in season 2018/19
There is nothing Richard desires more than to be King of England. He is a master of intrigue and betrayal, familiar with the ploys of  battlefield and court. As he lets us in on his plans, we witness the ruthlessness and unfettered ambition of a murderous political player.
»Fantastic acting, magnificent scenes, cleverly adapted text, remarkable theatre.« (Deutschlandfunk)
with english surtitles


Georg Büchner
Directed by: Roger Vontobel
04. June
»Woyzeck« is the most famous dramatic fragment in the history  of theatre, and Georg Büchner the most famous playwright from Hesse. The world he describes in this play has descended into  a nightmare of egomania and corruption. No purpose, no moral code has survived, and the god in whom Woyzeck believes has  long since turned his back on his creation.
»The director cast Jana Schulz, one of the most fragile, sensitive,  excitable actresses currently on German stages, in the role of Woyzeck.«  (Frankfurter Neue Presse)
with english surtitles

All my sons

Arthur Miller
Directed by: Anselm Weber
28. May, 09. June
Arthur Miller’s play is a searing investigation of greed, guilt and lies underneath the veneer of respectable middle class life. Born in  Harlem/New York in 1915, the American author is one of the most important playwrights of the 20th century. In 1947, he made his breakthrough on Broadway with »All My Sons«, followed by his most renowned play »Death of a Salesman« two years later. »Loud and long applause at the end for 100 minutes of intense theatre.« (Ruhr Nachrichten)
