~ ABBA: The Winner takes it all

On Sunday, 31 July 2016, the University Players were presented with not one, but two awards at the British All Winners Festival in Hertford, England.
Adjudicator Jan Palmer Sayer awarded INVASION! the Amateur Theatre Trophy for the most memorable production. She pointed out that after seeing the performance, the ABBA song “The Winner takes it all” will never sound the same again.
The University Players also received the Sydney Fisher Trophy for an outstandingly well-organized backstage crew. Recalling our quite chaotic backstage work at FEATS, this trophy makes us especially happy and proud. It is excellent proof of how much we learned as an ensemble just by participating in both festivals.
We are dedicating our two wonderful new trophies to the supporters of our #brinvasion crowd-funding campaign. Our participation at the British All Winners Festival was only made possible by the many generous donations we received. We raised enough money to cover the stage transportation, our travel expenses and even accommodation for the whole team. We are deeply grateful to everyone who contributed to this opportunity to learn and grow.

LAST PRODUCTION

Who do you think I am?

An evening of short plays about social/cultural/secret/hidden/confused identities

8. / 11.-14. / 17.-20. July, 8.30 p.m.

Audimax, Von-Melle-Park 4, 20146 Hamburg

Three short plays about young Europeans who struggle with their social identities, relationships and the expectations of others. The mysterious name Abulkasem, a group of school boys, an elusive terrorist, a refugee apple picker, an Iranian woman director, a blind date in a park and a jar filled with ashes invite the audience to explore their own prejudices. By the way: The first play of the evening will be our award-winning production of INVASION!

INVASION!

by Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Abulkasem. This word can be used as a verb, an adjective or a noun. lt changes its meaning constantly. As a name it connects a character from the Arabian Nights with a group of school boys, an elusive terrorist, a refugee apple picker hiding from immigration control, a boy who picks up a girl in a bar, and an eccentric Iranian woman director. Wherever Abulkasem appears, chaos follows. However, the important question is not who or what is Abulkasem, but what makes Abulkasem so important?

YOU WERE AFTER POETRY

by Steven Bloomer

In their relationship, Marc and Cathy haven’t been themselves lately. But if love is what comes after parks and poetry, then what comes after love? Is it possible you get to know the other and yourself even better than before?

SECRETS

by Steven Bloomer

Two strangers meet in a park to anonymously exchange their deepest secret. They free themselves of it and get on with their lives – at least that’s the deal. Yet, knowing so much about someone else isn’t quite as liberating as they had expected.
