CORONAVIRUS: NO PROGRAMME UNTIL APRIL 19TH

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, the crisis management team of the city of Bochum has decided that for the time being no more events will be held until April 19, 2020. This also applies to events with less than 100 participants. For the Schauspielhaus Bochum this will mean that all performances will have to be postponed, even some performance dates beyond April 19. We will inform you about alternative performance dates within the next weeks.

Visitors who are affected by the performance cancellations can rebook to a substitute performance free of charge, exchange their tickets for a voucher or cancel them. Subscribers will receive a replacement token, which can also be used in the next season until November 30, 2020. We will contact affected fixed subscribers individually as soon as new information becomes available. If the tickets have been purchased through an external advance booking office, please contact this office.

Our staff at the box office and the subscription office are available by telephone and e-mail to answer questions. In order to provide you with the best possible service and to minimise waiting times, we ask our visitors to inform us in writing their requests. The box office in the foyer of the Schauspielhaus and the subscription office are currently closed to visitors.

+++ The acting students of the 3rd year of the Folkwang University of the Arts will perform. +++

The United States. It's a very hot summer in Leister County. A stranger is killed on a farm. However, the following trial does not investigate the murder, but negotiates the coverage of the crime and its consequences. The trial on which this play is based actually took place in 1956 and yet it is full of current topics: xenophobia, hatred, fake news, the use of guns.

to play

The performance focuses on our elderly generation. This evening, filled with joy and tragedy, shows what seniors can pass on and that ageing shows a way to live openly, positively and fearlessly through this world. A biographical journey from the first crush, through the first heartache, (un)planned pregnancies, exciting affairs, sexual reorientations and the death of loved ones.

Chekhov's protagonist is a heavily indebted landowner who, just a few years ago, was still full of ideals and plans. Now his strength is consumed and the love for his seriously ill wife has died out. Jens Harzer plays the famous anti-hero, the dark epi-centre in the midst of a helpless society.

A man and a woman sitting in a living room talking. Their conversation zigzags through their shared and undivided past and present. She tells, he listens and tries to get access to her thoughts, feelings and memories. This late work by Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter is played by Elsie de Brauw and Guy Clemens.

William Shakespeare turned an European legend into the philosophical story of a search for meaning that is still fascinating today. Directed by Johans Simons with Sandra Hüller in the title role, Hamlet becomes a plea for radical honesty.

+++ Nestroy Prize 2019 for Steven Scharf and Johan Simons +++

In the "Theater an der Wien" the renowned Austrian Nestroy Theatre Prize was awarded to Steven Scharf for his role as Franz Woyzeck in "Woyzeck" by Georg Büchner (and as Lucas in "Medea" by Simon Stone after Euripides, Burgtheater). The co-production between the Vienna Burgtheater and the Schauspielhaus Bochum was directed by Johan Simons and impressed the jury: Johan Simons received the prestigious award in the category "Best Director" for this production. We are looking forward to showing you this production in spring 2020 in Bochum.
