The English Theatre Of Hamburg

September, 2011

Dear Friends of The English Theatre of Hamburg,

The first play of the 2011—2012 Season is THE FOX by Allan Miller, adapted from the novella by D.H. Lawrence. We wish to welcome actors Adam Reeves, Kate Middleton and Suzy Bastone (pictured below), all newcomers to our stage. The actors and director had a wonderful time in rehearsal. We hope that you will be able to see a performance of this powerful drama.

It's not too late to subscribe to the 2011—2012 Season. You can phone the box office (227 7089) or look at the website ( for information. By subscribing you can see four plays for less than the price of three. A subscription is the best way to save money, but there are other ways as well. If you book online you will save € 2,50 on each ticket. There is also a reduction for those who come in a group.

After THE FOX we will be presenting FUNNY ABOUT LOVE, a comedy by Terence Frisby, Shakespeare’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, and finally MOON OVER THE BREWERY, a touching comedy by Bruce Graham.

We look forward to seeing you at the theatre soon.

Shortly after World War I, two young women (Jill Banford and Nellie March) are struggling to exist on an isolated farm in the English countryside. One wintry night an attractive young soldier (Henry Grenfel), on leave from his battalion, suddenly appears at their door. In exchange for food and shelter, he offers to shoot a fox that has been stealing the women’s chickens. A fox in the henhouse is always bad news. But what the women do not realize is that letting the mysterious stranger into their lives can be just as dangerous. His erotic charms stir up emotions and divide the two friends. Who is this young soldier and what is he really after? Both of the women?  One of them? Their farm?  The passions that arise lead to an explosion.
