Persuasion by Jane Austen

 

When Anne Elliott fell in love as a young woman, she let herself be persuaded that her chosen, Frederick Wentworth, was a man without any prospects and therefore anything but a suitable match. Her heart broken, she never married. When Wentworth returns a rich man from the Napoleonic Wars years later, Anne, her affection unchanged, has to stand by as several eligible young women set their caps at him. Her situation is further complicated by her vain and extravagant father, the sudden attentions of her father’s estranged heir, and the claims upon her time by her silly sister Mary.

2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. In honour of one of the greatest English authors, the Hamburg Players present this adaptation of her last completed novel. (Adapted by Julia Claußen, directed by Lexi von Hoffmann)

An Inspector Calls Life and Beth <p>by J.B. Priestley

 

"Public men, Mr Birling, have responsibilities as well as privileges"

England 1912. A mysterious suicide – how is the privileged Birling family connected to the dead working-class girl Eva Smith? Arthur Birling, a successful manufacturer, believes that if man minds his own business and takes care of his family no harm will come. Inspector Goole has other ideas and his persistent questioning tears down the seemingly perfect façade put on by the Birlings.

 

“An Inspector Calls” is a scathing critique of the hypocrisies of Edwardian English society. J.B. Priestley’s drama is today considered to be a classic in mid-20th century contemporary theatre. It combines elements of mystery and socially conscious family drama.
