The time has come once again for Royal Holloway’s annual German Play. This year we have chosen to perform Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder by Bertolt Brecht, a German poet and dramatist, who also wrote the play for our very successful performance of Pauken und Trompeten last year. Mutter Courage, which was written in 1939, is considered by some to be the greatest play of the 20th century, and perhaps also the greatest anti-war play of all time. We would love for you to join us on either
Monday 27th February,
Tuesday 28th February, or
Wednesday 29th February 2012
at 7.30pm in Arts Lecture Theatre 1.
Tickets are £4 and include a free programme and plot synopsis in English. If you would like to reserve tickets and pay on the night, please email the German Society Committee on rhulgermansocietyyahoo.co.uk. We recommend that you reserve tickets to avoid disappointment. We have decided not to take advanced payments so that teachers do not have to worry about collecting money prior to the performance. On reserving your tickets you will receive a map of the Royal Holloway campus showing you where the performance will take place, as well as information about parking.
We kindly ask you to display the attached poster in your school and please pass on the information of the play to anyone who you think may be interested.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our performances!
