September, 2005 Newsletter
Dear Email Friends,
For those of you who are new to the world of computers we would like to point out that the words in blue in the text and at the bottom of this page
are links. You might want to try clicking on them. It's fun. If you click on teaching material, for example, you will come to a page where the plays of the season are listed. Then just click on THE FOURPOSTER and the teaching material for this production will pop up like magic.
-TWELFTH NIGHT by William Shakespeare-
We produced TWELFTH NIGHT in 2001. Next season (2006-2007) we would like to produce ROMEO AND JULIET, and we will if we find financial assistance. We would like to treat you to five plays (instead of the usual four) next season. That will mean shorter runs (probably eight weeks) but more entertainment for you.

Früher war bekanntlich alles besser. Da endete die Ehe nicht mit
einer Blitz-scheidung, sondern man blieb zu--sammen, auch wenn von Liebe keine
Spur mehr zu erkennen war.
(In "The Fourposter von Jan de Hartog") Die Krisen und Versöhnungen spielen sich im Schlafzimmer ab, rund um
das Himmel-bett. Von Hochzeitsnacht, Schwanger-schaft, Erziehungsfragen
und Affäre bis hin zu Zweifeln an der Ehe . . . gewinnen beide Schauspieler durch ihr Engage- ment. Schluß-Erkenntnis: "Marriage was a good thing."

Das "English Theatre" ist das einzige englischsprachige Theater in Nord- deutschland. 1976 von Robert Rumpf and Clifford Dean gegründet, bereitet es seinen Besuchern mit Klassikern, Thrillern, Komödien und modernen Inszenierungen so manchen vergnüg- ichen Theaterabend. Dabei arbeitet das Haus ausschließlich mit professionellen englischsprachigen Schauspielern und die liebevoll inszenierten Produktionen sind meist sehr unterhaltsam--selbst die eine oder andere fehlende Vokabel ist kein Problem, da die Aktionen auf der Bühne sprachliche Lücken oft stopfen.
Good news. You are now able to park underground behind the theatre (subject to charge) and take the elevator up to the theatre. You can leave your coats in the car and avoid the weather when it is bad. This we should not tell you because it means less income at the cloakroom, but this tip comes as one of the many benefits you enjoy by subscribing to our newsletter. You can use the money you save to buy some delicious wine gummies at the bar.

Anne Lange was a strong person with incredible drive and determination. She fought cancer for over ten years, but we lost her in 1986. You would never have guessed she was seriously ill. Working hard to promote and sustain the theatre, gave her "strength and an important reason to live," she said. She believed that it prolonged her life. Anne did everything from the bookkeeping to cleaning the toilets. With her total dedication to the English Theatre, there was no job that she found menial. She was fascinated by everything that went on here and loved the business and physical labor as much as the art of the theatre. She refused to take money. The joy of contributing to the life of this institution was enough payment for her. How lucky we were to have Anne with us as long as we did!
