Welcome to the English Dramatic Society

We are currently working on a new project for summer 2021 (information to follow in due course). In the meantime enjoy a poem read by our director, Kirsten Henry: 'A Forsaken Garden' by Algernon Charles Swinburne.

Thank you for visiting our website

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

Revisit the 26 days of Christmas

Behind each door of our Advent calendar 2020 you will find a story or a poem read by a present or past member of the EDS.

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 later in 2021

In less challenging times we would be busy rehearsing for the 2021 winter production. Whilst the current situation means that there will unfortunately be no play for you to watch in February, we remain hopeful that a performance of some kind will be possible in the summer.

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