Men Asleep

by Martin Crimp
Directed by Katie Mitchell

Premiere 17/03/2018


The opening night of Karin Beier’s directorship in the 2013-14 season will not be forgotten. It had to take place at the Studio Hamburg in Tonndorf because of a serious accident with the safety curtain. The world premiere of Martin Crimp’s »The Rest Will Be Familiar to You from Cinema« became a great success. We were able to show the work, in director Katie Mitchell’s highly accomplished production, for three whole seasons, later returning with it to the SchauspielHaus itself. »The Rest Will Be Familiar to You from Cinema« was named best foreign play of the season 2013-14 in the critics’ survey of »Theater heute«.

We are very pleased that Martin Crimp is writing another play for the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus Hamburg. Of course it will be directed by Katie Mitchell, with whom Martin Crimp has a longstanding working relationship.
