Welcome to the English Dramatic Society

We are currently planning for a return to the stage in summer 2022 in time to celebrate the 50th annioverary of the EDS (information to follow in due course). In the meantime we invite you to join us on the afternoon of Sunday, 24th April when we will be performing a short play at the Kulturcafé Seebühne in Vestenbergsgreuth:

"The Actor's Nightmare"

A short comic play by Christopher Durang

Thank you for visiting our website

We are a regularly performing English theatre group at the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg language centre.

Summer 2020

With the theatres closed and rehearsals impossible it looked like the summer semester would be what we believe would have been the first in the history of the EDS without a production. Fortunately we had the opportunity to perform with a small group 'open air' on one afternoon in August - unusually for the EDS in both English and German.

It’s all about love oder So ist das mit der Liebe

A selection of love poems, scenes & verses in English and German with poetry by Shakespeare, Goethe, Tucholsky, Rilke, and more.

We would like to thank the Kulturcafé Seebühne in Vestenbergsgreuth for the opportunity to perform there and of course the audience for their valuable support.

We look forward to performing for you again in July / August 2022

Whilst the continuing pandemic situation meant that there was unfortunately no play for you to watch in February this year, we are confident that performances will finally be possible again in the summer – a “relaunch” just in time to celebrate 50 years of the EDS (1972 – 2022). Look out for updates on the website at the beginning of May.

The EDS relies on your support to be able to continue to produce regular plays and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
