The German Play was a Huge Success!

(The Newsletter took a brief break this year due to the birth of Leopold, the son of Prof. Florence Feiereisen of the German Dept. and her husband, Prof. Frank Swenton, of the Mathematics Dept. The information below pertains to the 2010 German Dept. play directed by Prof. Bettina Matthias.  The 2011 play, Der Trauschein, by Ephraim Kishon, presented in May and also directed by Prof. Matthias, was equally enthusiastically received.) 


This year's German Dept. Play, Arthur Schnitzler's Der grüne Kakadu (the Green Cockatoo) directed by Professor Bettina Matthias, delighted  capacity audiences  May 7 and 8  in the Foreign Language Performance Space in the Chateau basement.

The cast had just won first place with scenes from the play at the annual Mt. Holyoke College German Theater Festival.

A detailed scene-by scene synopsis clarified the action for anyone who didn't understand German.

You can see photos from Der grüne Kakadu in this year's Newsletter (link below.)
