Work has begun on this year’s production. We are adapting a children’s story entitled “Fox.” The novel is about the relationship between a homeless man and his pet fox and a young school-boy who is fascinated by the fox. Lindy Annis, who has already written three Platypus plays in the 1990’s including the evergreen TEENAGERS in TROUBLE, will be writing the play. Anja Scollin will be directing. Premiere will be on November 9th in the ufaFabrik.

December 2016

December is a busy month for us. Most of the shows are booked out but we do have a few seats left for EXPEDITION 3.71 on the 19.12.16 in the Distel, and for THE TORTILLA CURTAIN on the 20.12.16 in the Distel.
Now that Donald Trump is planning to build a bigger and better fence along the U.S.A-Mexico border THE TORTILLA CURTAIN is as relevant as ever. In our play, Kyra says “Damn those Mexicans, why don’t they just round them all up and send them back to Mexico!” It’s hard to believe that Donald Trump is going to try and do this. Perhaps his intentions are all just hot air. Let’s hope so.

We are looking forward to a very busy November. On the 10th and 11th of November we will perform our brand new play EXPEDITION 3.71 in the BKA Theater in Kreuzberg at 11.00 a.m. There are still some seats available for these performances.

October 2016

The premiere of EXPEDITION 3.71 went really well. The youngest member of the audience was 7 years old, the eldest was 91. The students from the Romain Rolland Gymnasium and the Emil-Fischer-Schule liked the play. Uli Köhler from the DLR gave a great opening speech about the connection between Art and Science and many of our visitors enjoyed posing for a photo behind the life sized astronaut photo. The next performances are on the 10th and 11th of November in the BKA at 11.00 a.m.

Rehearsals for our new play, EXPEDITION  3.71, for senior students are now in full swing in preparation for the premiere on Thursday 13th October at 7 p.m. in the Ufa Fabrik in Tempelhof. The play is relevant for the Abitur theme " Science and technology-Visons of the Future” because it deals with space exploration and the ever increasing likelihood that Astronauts will land on Mars in the not too distant future.

July/ August 2016

Dear English teachers and friends,

We are pleased to present you our new schedule for next season. Please note that SEE YOU LATER NAVIGATOR is only on for a limited season in October and November 2016. The play will be back as from May 2017.

We are optimistic that BETWEEN THE LINES will find its place in the hearts of many more 8th grade teachers and will lead to a regular annual theater visit, as it is with many of the other plays in our repertoire.
