Summer Theatre in the historical warehouse district
“Der Hamburger Jedermann“

Now in its twenty-fifth year, „Der Hamburger Jedermann“ is being performed on stage every weekend between the 20th of July and 19th of August 2018 in the eerily apt backdrop of the Speicherstadt warehouse district. Written by Michael Batz, the play revolves around the „everyman“ theme that was first written some 500 years ago. Hamburg‘s Free Port provides the perfect setting for this timeless tale of possession and identity, of money and responsibility, of death, the devil, and the final journey. Re-told from a fresh angle, this „serious comedy“ takes full advantage of the history oozing from the Speicherstadt.

Open-air-theatre at the water‘s edge, in the very heart of a commercial centre that pulsates with tradition – irony and satire packaging a grim parable that has been updated to reflect the late Twentieth Century. „Jedermann“ is played by Robin Brosch, who you may recognize from television; it is in German, but an experience worth taking in, even if you understand very little of what is actually said. The 18 performances in 2018 start at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and 7 p.m. on Sunday evenings, by the Sandbrücke, at the heart of the largest warehouse complex in the world.
