THIS NOVEMBER: "BEAT THE DEVIL a Covid Monologue" by David Hare

in cooperation with the Theatermuseum der Landeshauptstadt Düsseldorf

"On the same day that the UK government finally made the first of two decisive interventions that led to a conspicuously late lockdown, David Hare (the playwright) contracted Covid-19. Nobody seemed to know much about it then, and many doctors are not altogether sure they know much more today. Suffering a pageant of apparently random symptoms, Hare recalls the delirium of his illness, which mixed with fear, dream, honest medicine and dishonest politics create a monologue of furious urgency and power."

12th November at 6pm (Premiere), 13th and 14th November at 4pm & 6pm. Reserve your seats, due to Covid restrictions seating in LIMITED!

Tickets: 12,00€ / 10,00€ (students) | Box office: / 0211 8996130 | Location: Theatermuseum, Jägerhofstraße 1, 40479 Düsseldorf

Performed by Tom Zahner | Directed by Ilya Parenteau

Christmas is coming!!

English Theatre Düsseldorf presents, in cooperation with Düsseldorf Lyric Opera, the rip roaring British Christmas comedy, THE MESSIAH by Patrick Barlow

The entire company of two, led by "distinguished historian and thespian", artistic director, Jeffrey Thespus Wimpole, (Mike McAlpine) and his complete ensemble, the incompetent, er, valiant assistant, Humphrey Dott, (Tom Zahner) bring us their version of the entire Christmas story, with the help of "diva" Opera singer, Mrs Thomas, (Phillipa Thomas) including all of the best-loved characters, Joseph, Mary, and Archangel Gabriel, Herod, God and many more.
