The English-speaking theater at Willy-Brandt-Platz is a valuable addition to the city and the region. However, its continued existence is threatened by a change in ownership.
For several months, the Volt faction in the Römer has been monitoring the negotiations between the English Theatre and the new owner of the venue “Capitaland.” While a cultural use for the premises is required, the lease has not yet been extended.
“The English Theatre Frankfurt offers a unique and high-quality program, particularly for an international audience and students in the region,” says Britta Wollkopf, spokesperson on cultural-policy for the faction.
Therefore, the faction supports the theater’s petition, which has already been signed by over 12,000 people, and encourages everyone to participate: https://english-theatre.de/etf-campaign/
