Wolfgang Borchert Theater (Wolfgang Borchert Theatre)
Wolfgang Borchert Theatre
The Wolfgang Borchert Theater (founded in 1956) is one of the oldest professional, private theatres in Germany, sporting a permanent ensemble and augmented with guest players. The theatre was christened Wolfgang Borchert Theatre during the 1982/1983 season.
With stage director and actor Meinhard Zanger from Cologne having taken over the theatre management in the 2006/2007 season, the profile of a literature-oriented intimate play theatre is taking root. The repertoire is characterised by a mixture of unique staging of the classics and contemporary productions.
