Dear Friends of The English Theatre of Hamburg,

You won’t want to miss Bruce Graham’s MOON OVER THE BREWERY, the final play of our 35th Anniversary Season. We hope you will find time in your schedule for a visit to the theatre. The last performance is on 30 June. Click here for a video clip of the show.

In this play you will see three newcomers on our stage - Charlotte Croft, Paula Bacon and Richard Mark. We're happy to have them with us, and we welcome back Jonathan Magnanti, who appeared on our stage in Alan Ayckbourn's ABSENT FRIENDS back in 1995. He took time off to marry and raise two children, but he has returned to his chosen profession.

You can now subscribe to our 2012--2013 Season and, as usual, see four plays for the price of three. We have planned an exciting and varied season for you. The plays we will produce are:

REASONS TO BE PRETTY, a play by Neil LaBute
TOUCH AND GO, a farce by Derek Benfield
OLEANNA, a play by David Mamet
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNEST, a classic comedy by Oscar Wilde

Subscriptions to next season’s program can be obtained online (www.englishtheatre.de) or by phoning the box office (040-227 7089).

Von den Problemen einer Single-Mutter
Tolle Komödie: MOON OVER THE BREWERY am English Theatre
Mutter hat eine neue Liebe—diese Entdeckung wirft Amanda völlig aus der Bahn. In ihrer emotionalen Not sucht das Mädchen Zuflucht bei ihrem treuen Freund Randolph (Richard Mark). Der verwegene Kerl existiert in der romantischen Liebeskomödie MOON OVER THE BREWERY (von Bruce Graham) zwar nur in der Fantasie des Teenagers—ist in der humorvoll—warmherzigen Inszenierung (Regie: Robert Rumpf) am English Theater aber der schillernde Mittelpunkt.

Mit Vergnügen stachelt Randolph die unglückliche Amanda (Charlotte Croft) aus, Mama Miriams neuen Mann (Jonathan Magnanti) durch patziges Betragen zu verjagen und um die ungeteilte Liebe ihrer Mutter zu kämpfen. Feinfühlig loten die Schauspieler das Beziehungsgeflecht der berührenden Geschichte aus. Und ziehen hinein in die kleine Welt der alleinerziehenden Miriam (Paula Bacon), die sich aufreibt im Spagat zwischen Mutterliebe und Liebesglück. Bis es ihrem neuen Freunde schließlich gelingt, Amandas Zuneigung zu gewinnen und sie aus den Fängen des imaginären Randolph zu befreien. Gemütvolles Gegenwartstheater.  BS

Graham-Schauspiel im English Theatre
. . . ein mit Tiefgang und Gefühl geschriebenes, psychologisch gewitztes Ping-Pong-Spiel und eine entsprechende Regie . . . Auch das Bild „Mond über der Brauerei“ erleben wir voller Empathie, mit rollendeckend bestens ausgesuchten Schauspielern, eine Entwicklung, die . . . fesselt. MN
