This annual event, sponsored by the German Embassy (and this
year with the generous support from the Bristol University Alumni
Foundation), will be held for the first time ever in the South West or
Wales. It aims to bring together a rich mixture of dramatic
productions, all presented in German, by universities across Britain,
and this year includes a special guest appearance by a university
from Dublin also. Each participating university gives one
performance during the week.

adolescence and awakening sexuality in a repressive society.

Thurs 22 March: Fassbinder, Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von
Kant, King's College, London
Very well known as a film, this is the theatre version by one of
Germany's most provocative twentieth-century playwrights.
