Anglistentheater

The AnglistenTheater of the University of Augsburg is an amateur student theatre group that has performed plays in English since 1980. It was founded by Rudolf Beck who produced and directed plays between 1981 and 1990. He was succeeded by Ute Legner and Roger Evans, who directed their first play, Caryl Churchill’s Top Girls, in 1988. Ute Legner was in charge of the AnglistenTheater from 1991 to 2006. During her time more than 15 contemporary plays were shown at the University and at the Abraxas theatre, many of them for the first time on a German stage. After an interval of 6 years, Rudolf Beck revived the AnglistenTheater in 2012 with Simon Stephens’ One Minute.

 

We are delighted to inform you that in December the AnglistenTheater will perform a contemporary version of Sophocles' tragedy Electra by award-winning playwright Nick Payne.

 

Performances will be held on Thu 5, Fri 6, Tue 10, and Thur 12 December, at 8 p.m., in Hörsaal II.
