Dear Friends of The English Theatre of Hamburg,

Our current production of REASONS TO BE PRETTY by Neil LaBute has had superb reviews from critics (see below). The last performance is on 10 November. We hope you can see it if you haven’t already had the opportunity.

We just returned from London where we cast our next play, Derek Benfield’s comedy TOUCH AND GO, a crowd pleaser with a lot of laughs that will help us all get through the dark, cold winter months. The play premieres on 22 November and you can already book tickets. Four of the five actors have worked here before: James Walmsley, Debbie Radcliffe, Stephen Chance and Sarah Ogley. We are all glad they could come back, and we would like to welcome newcomer Amy Newton who is thrilled to be making her debut at The English Theatre of Hamburg. You’ll find photos of all of the TOUCH AND GO actors below. Free Teaching Material (including summaries) for both TOUCH AND GO and REASONS TO BE PRETTY can be found by clicking here.

Sincerely yours,

The Directors

Clifford Dean and Robert Rumpf

More Press Clippings for Reasons To Be Pretty:

Hamburger Morgenpost, 15.September 2012
Von herzlich bis schmerzlich: Die Beziehungsgeschichte „Reasons To Be Pretty“ am English Theatre
In der mit großem Applaus gefeierten, eindringlichen Inszenierung am English Theatre erleben die Zuschauer, wie zwei Paare über die Fallstricke der Sprache stolpern. Gebannt folgt man dem intensiven Zusammenspiel, das einen gesellschaftskritischen Blick in die Abgründe menschlicher Verhaltensweisen wirft. Hochklassiges, modernes Schauspielertheater.

 

Hamburger Wochenblatt, September 2012
Bin ich schön? Ein Schauspiel von Neil LaBute
…um den Stellenwert, die Macht der Schönheit geht’s in Neil LaButes Stück „Reasons To Be Pretty“ ….und um die Unsicherheit junger Menschen, die auf wenig mehr setzen als auf ihr Aussehen. Das spielt ein hervorragendes junges Ensemble in der Regie von Clifford Dean, einem der beiden Gründer und Betreiber des English Theatres. Lange Dialoge zwischen den vier jungen Protagonisten um Liebe, Schönheit, Werte einer Beziehung, um Lüge und Wahrheit, werden bei diesen vier Darstellern nie langweilig. Madeleine Hutchins, Gabrielle Douglas, Jed Shardlow und Chris Casey spielen mit Leichtigkeit und großer Intensität, so dass man gebannt an ihren Worten hängt.

 

Die Auswärtige Presse, September 2012
What kind of play is "Reasons to be Pretty?" Is it a drama or a comedy? It is a mixture of both depicting our obsession with physical attractiveness and the pressure we put on ourselves to look a certain way. The play also advises us to think twice before talking in order not to hurt other people's feelings. Further it shows that we are far more than our physical appearance and that it does not take much effort to be kind in our relationships. The quartet on stage - all four being wonderful actors and attractive ones at that - are giving their best. Congratulations!
