    I am interested in going to the Theatertreffen and wanted to find out more about this.

    I really like theatre and I am visiting from England and am wondering whether you would suggest anything particular to see? I know the programme is not out until April 13 but I want to plan the trip to Berlin.

    Thank you,

    • Dear Zoe,

      thank you for your interest in Theatertreffen. At this point, the only real advise I can give is to book your festival tickets as early as possible, as they are normally sold out in a very short time. There are performances on basically every day during the festival, so whenever you visit, you’ll certainly have a chance of catching something. What to watch depends – as usual – on your personal preferences. Performances are usually subtitled in English and at least „Real Magic“ by Sheffield-based Forced Entertainment will be in English anyways. So language should not be a problem, in case you were worrying.
      Check out the productions invited to this year’s Theatertreffen here:

      Best regards
