  • Liverpool: Gateway to heaven and hell

    Saturday, 17 February 2018, 17:30h

    Neil Deane presents his book on his home town. It offers the reader: a comprehensive social and cultural history; an insider travel guide; an analysis of the city's people and the places they inhabit; the gripping tale of the Beatles in their Liverpool home and an evaluation of the music that preceded their rise and followed their demise in 1970. An inside view of the Scouser's unbreakable bond with his football team and the pub completes the picture.

  • Little Germany, the German immigrants in London in the mid-19th century

    Saturday, 17 March 2018, 17:30h

    Karl Marx and his family were the most prominent members of the London refugee community, but it included many other fascinating men and women. In the bicentenary of the birth of Marx (1818), Bob Muscutt will tell us about how the Marx family and other refugees lived and were treated in the country in which, for various reasons, they sought refuge.

  • ‘Some Girl(s)’ by Neil LaBute

    Friday, 13 April 2018, 19:00h

    Performed by our local company, English Theatre Düsseldorf.

    On the eve of his wedding, a successful writer travels across the country to meet ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Acclaimed and highly discussed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute has established himself firmly as an unforgiving judge of the ugliest side of human nature. His language is terse, rhythmic and highly colloquial. Written in 2005, two years after ‘The Shape of Things’ (at ESC in 2011), this play was adapted and premiered as a film in 2013.

    In cooperation with the International Education Centre of the VHS Düsseldorf ‘Die Brücke’

    WBZ (Weiterbildungszentrum der VHS), Saal 1,
    Bertha-von-Suttner-Platz 1, 40227 Düsseldorf
