This is Andreas Böhm’s poster for Electra.


The motif was inspired by the scene in which Orestes reveals himself to Electra by emptying the urn which allegedly contains his own ashes, but which is actually filled with stones. At this point Electra realizes that her brother is not dead, but has come back to take his revenge on his mother Clytemnestra and her partner Aegistus for killing his father Agamemnon upon his return from the Trojan War.

A new AnglistenTheater Icon

Design: Julia Wittmann © Universität Augsburg



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.      

  • For the winter production, Nick Payne’s Electra ...
    ... we are still looking     for skilled and enthusiastic volunteers to join our set construction and backstage crew and our front of house team.
  • If you would like to get involved in our summer 2020 production ...
    ... you should keep an eye on this website for the date of our initial meeting, which will probably be held on Tuesday 21 January 2020, at 7:15 p.m., in 2127A (D building).
