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.

Program highlights 2023/2024

The Miser

Directed by: Mateja Koležnik

Molière's comedy premiered at the Théâtre du Palais in 1668. 355 years later, Slovenian director Mateja Koležnik is staging the still highly topical material in the banking city of Frankfurt. It is about nothing less than avarice.
"The Miser", as we know the 5-act comedy by Molière, is largely based on the so-called comedy of the pot of gold by the Roman poet Plautus. While Molière writes a ludicrously intricate comedy on the subject of avarice, Koležnik will seek and find human transgression in it.

Masha K. (Tourist Status)

Director: Christina Tscharyiski

"I don't think we'll ever find peace here," wrote the poet Mascha Kaléko in her diary in 1941. The Jewish poet experienced a few brilliant years in Berlin, during which she rose to become an icon of "New Objectivity". The life and work of Mascha Kaléko are the starting point for a new play by Anja Hilling. The play tells the story of a life in which the only lingering is in movement, of attempts to start families, in art, in convention, in love. In Christina Tscharyiski's production, the poetic language of the play is combined with a driving musicality to create a journey through space and time.
