Junges Theater Göttingen
The Junges Theater Göttingen was originally founded as an alternative and in opposition to the classical theatre of town and state. What began as a group of students engaged in amateur theatricals developed into a professional ensemble staging the works of young authors with new perspectives. Among those as yet unknown authors were Samuel Beckett and Günter Grass, who were later to be awarded the Nobel Prize.
Since 1976, the Junges Theater has been resident at the Otfried Müller Haus in the centre of Göttingen. This building has always been an open, cultural and political place, also for the “Göttinger Sieben”, who developed here their intellectual ideas of resistance against authority in the name of freedom. Today, the Junges Theater remains an ensemble and repertoire theatre company providing a unique space of free-thinking and hospitality in the middle of Germany.
