Experimental Shakespeare

A monthly Shakespeare Series at the Pfefferberg Theater in Berlin, based on the model of Backroom Shakespeare in Chicago.

Each month a different Shakespeare play is produced in a 90-minute cutting prepared and staged by Brian Bell. The actors learn their roles independently and meet for a single rehearsal, the next night the show is put on in a cabaret-style setting in the Glaspalast venue at the Pfefferberg.
