Maiden Thought Theatre is the English-speaking theatre initiative of Theatrale Bretter e.V. The project extends the English-speaking cultural and participation offer in Bremen and around. English-speaking people gain creative and practical opportunities of participation, and the project lays the foundations for regular cultural programming in the region.
Young and old come together at Maiden Thought Theatre, to play together. Our practice is rigorously inclusive: we do not discriminate against anyone whether their gender, sexuality, origin, religion or disability. Our project celebrates Bremen and its diversity, and offers its participants new company and open perspectives. A colourful mix of age and background enriches our team and our creative process.
Founded by Aenne Pallasca and Frances Byrd, Maiden Thought Theatre works with volunteers who contribute their manifold talents, from costume design to music. Since November 2016 we regularly invite interested people to make theatre with us, or to follow our process in workshops. Maiden Thought Theatre follows the Elizabethan theatre tradition, which makes theatre accessible, approachable and entertaining for everyone.
In May 2017 we premiered “Gallathea” by John Lyly. The comedy met an enthusiastic audience that encouraged us to continue the project. In order to be able to keep making work and take Bremen’s population with us on our journey, we need your help.
