«Regen» - A stage play by and with Ferdinand von Schirach

The best-selling author can be seen for the first time as an actor in his own new play "Regen".

Der Spiegel called Ferdinand von Schirach a "great storyteller", the New York Times an "extraordinary stylist", the Independent compared him to Kafka and Kleist, the Financial Times with Raymond Carver, and the Daily Telegraph wrote that he is "one of the most distinctive voices in European literature". His books have been made into many films and have sold millions of copies as international bestsellers. They have been published in more than forty countries. His plays Terror and Gott are among the most successful and most discussed contemporary dramas worldwide.

In August 2023, Ferdinand von Schirach's new book "Regen" will be published. A story that Ferdinand von Schirach is now performing himself as a monologue on stage: A man comes drenched out of the rain into a bar - onto the stage - and talks about the great and the terrible of our time, about human dignity, loneliness, love, loss and failure.

Ferdinand von Schirach's "Regen" is a play that is as courageous as it is deeply personal, a play on the border between stage character and author.

"If the word 'cultivated' did not exist, one would have to invent it for Ferdinand von Schirach." (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung).
