The Anglo-Irish Theatre Group

We are a Tübingen based theatre group founded in 1980 by students of English at the University of Tübingen in the south of Germany. Though originally we focused on Anglo-Irish plays, over the years we have staged all kinds of plays written in the English language and are keen on plays by new aspiring playwrights as well as bringing classics in a new look back on stage! We welcome everyone willing to participate either on stage or backstage – be it tech, make-up, props, or dramaturgy! In theatre there is always lots to do, so if you’re interested in joining us, just let us know via email: eva.schwendemann@gmail.com or inbox us on Facebook!
