The English Theatre Of Hamburg

April, 2013

Dear Friends of The English Theatre of Hamburg,

Oscar Wilde’s THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST closes on 27 April. Try not to miss this unique production directed by Julian Woolford (See press clippings below.).

Rich Orloff’s BIG BOYS opens on 9 May and is the final play of our 36th Season. We hope you enjoy this contemporary comedy about the struggle for values in corporate America. In BIG BOYS you will see one new-comer to our stage, James Groom. We wish to extend a warm welcome to him and to Alan Booty, who appeared in Ronald Harwood’s QUARTET in 2009. Mr Harwood’s play has recently been made into a successful film with Maggie Smith.

You can now subscribe to our 2013--2014 Season and, as usual, see four plays for the price of three. Subscriptions to next season’s program can be obtained by phoning the box office (040-227 7089). We have planned an exciting and varied season for you. The plays we will be producing are:

STONE COLD MURDER, a new British thriller by James Cawood that is packed with suspense and action.
RELATIVELY SPEAKING, a popular British comedy that is considered to be Alan Ayckbourn's best crafted piece.
MASS APPEAL, a contemporary American play by Bill C. Davis that reveals the conflicts within the Catholic Church and is “one of those rare plays that entertains but also educates.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
NATIONAL ANTHEMS, a powerfully gripping play by Dennis McIntyre about the collapse of the American Dream.

If you would like to download teaching material which includes summaries of our plays you can do so from our website (www.englishtheatre.de) as soon as the material has been written.

Sincerely yours,

The Directors

Clifford Dean and Robert Rumpf

Alas, at the end of this month we must say good-bye to the eight brilliant actors, singers and musicians that made THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST such a beautiful experience for everyone. Their last performance is on 27th April. Please mark the day on your calendar and book before it is too late. On the 28th they will fly back to the “real” world, but we hope they will have fond memories of Hamburg and our enthusiast audiences for the rest of their lives.

Remember Derek Benfield's TOUCH AND GO?

Debbie Radcliffe, one of the most positive, enthusiastic people we’ve ever met, played Hilary in Derek Benfield’s TOUCH AND GO, the second show of our 2012—2013 Season. She loved the 15 weeks she spent in Hamburg and made a few small paintings of the city as mementos that we’d like to share with you:
