About us

Berlin's Shakespeare Ensemble

The Shakespeare Players are a theatre company at Friedrich Ebert Gymnasium, a secondary school in Berlin Wilmersdorf.

Every year beginning in 2000 we staged a Shakespeare play in the original version with pupils from grades 7 to 12.

We use a shortened playscript that is slightly easier to facilitate understanding, but stay true to Shakespeare's work and hope to entertain our audience well and enthuse them for the Bard.

From 2020 onwards and despite the pandemic, a smaller company has continued our efforts with zeal.
