No We Can’t, and are Heartbroken

In view of the restrictive new CORONA rules about to be introduced in Bavaria next Wednesday (2G+, max. 25% of seats allowed, theatre bar closed), we felt we had little choice but to cancel our production of Pinter's Landscape, Night, and Family Voices.


We still hope that, once the overall situation has improved and rules have become less restrictive, we can re-start the project, perhaps some time in spring. Many of us who have put an immense amount of effort and work into the plays are heartbroken and angry. But we will not give up; we will be back!


Ticket Refund: Whoever has already got or reserved their tickets and paid for them should send us an email stating their IBAN, and we will refund them directly. -- In case they bought their tickets at the Taschenbuchladen Krüger, simply take the tickets back, and you will be refunded.



Sensemble Theatre in Difficulties

The restrictive new Bavarian CORONA rules make life extremely difficult for the Sensemble theatre, where we were going to stage the three Pinter plays. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the Sensemble theatre's appeal for donations, which we fully support:

Our plans for 2022

At the moment we are considering the production of two  short(ish) plays by Caryl Churchill, but the final decision will not be made until January, 2022. As usual, we are looking for newcomers to join our team, actresses and especially (simply because we have got so few) male actors. So if you have good or even perfect English and would like to act in our next production, or if you would like to be a prompt, lend a helping hand with stage management, makeup, stage design, sound design and costumes, or join our backstage and front of house teams, do get in touch with us. We welcome people from all backgrounds and different parts of the globe, and you don’t even have to be a student to join us!


Join us at our introductory meeting for the 2022 summer season

on Tuesday 18th January at 7:15 p.m.
in rm 2127A (D building of the university).


AnglistenTheater production of Amanda Whittington's Thrill of Love featured in Nick Hern Books new blog post

In 2020, Nick Hern Books published a blog post about their Most-Performed Plays of 2019. Amanda Whittington’s play The Thrill of Love made the Top 10 and, because Nick Hern liked our pictures so much, they featured a photo from the AnglistenTheater production! Take a look at the blog post here.

A new AnglistenTheater Icon

Julia Wittmann ...

... has created a magnificent new Icon for the AnglistenTheater – although it’s in fact ages since we last produced one of Shakespeare’s plays: to be precise, this was Macbeth back in 1990 (see History of the AnglistenTheater).


We are still working ...

... on ways to make this icon available on T-shirts and, perhaps, mugs, at a reasonable price.


So perhaps in 2020 ...

... when we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we’ll be able to tell you how to get hold of these.





Interested in joining us?

We always welcome new members, whether they would like to be on stage as actresses and actors, or rather join our team of creatives or the backstage and front of house crew.
