Schauspiel Frankfurt with a diverse program in 2024
In the current season, Schauspiel Frankfurt is once again offering a diverse program: "Orlando - A Biography", based on Virginia Woolf, is a play that questions the seemingly fixed boundaries of gender, power and status. In "The Rape of the Sabines", a busy theater director refuses to accept the fact that the audience is staying away and tries to take hilarious countermeasures. "The Strangling Angel" takes a humorous look at a privileged class that is trapped in a space in between, completely unable to act. The play presents the most famous vampire in cultural history, "Dracula", in a spectacular performance. R. W. Fassbinder's post-war drama "The Marriage of Maria Braun" deals with the life story of a woman in times of upheaval. Director Sapir Heller uses Heinrich Böll's "The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum" to show the proximity of omnipresent sensational journalism to today's populism. A female voice also speaks in Elfriede Jelinek's "Sonne/Luft": Die Sonne lacht über den Menschen, der sich schuldig gemacht hat. The question of guilt and responsibility is also present in Dostoyevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov", in Schiller's "Don Carlos" and in Nino Haratischwili's "Phädra, in Flames".
The Schauspiel Frankfurt is the largest spoken theater in the Rhine-Main region and enjoys a great deal of attention throughout Germany as a nationally renowned stage. In the four venues - Schauspielhaus, Kammerspiele, Box and Bockenheimer Depot - renowned directors present both classics and contemporary drama. In addition to the impressive productions, Schauspiel Frankfurt creates spaces for encounters, discussions and exhibitions in the BOX, the Panorama Bar and the Chagallsaal. Here, artists can present themselves, audiences can ask questions and the city's citizens can get into conversation with each other.
