DEAR MRS WOOLF, a monologue adapted from the letters of Virginia Woolf to Vita Sackville-West by Christine Lehnen, premiered at the Brotfabrik Theatre in Bonn on Wednesday 28th May 2019. Lisa Pohlers starred as Virginia Woolf. The show, featuring two more monologues written by Eva Fürst (“Witch Hunt”) and Marian Blok (“meinführer”), was sold out. It was part of the programme of the Bonner Theaternacht 2019. DEAR MRS WOOLF will also be performed on June 8th 2019 as part of the Frankenstein Festival at the Brotfabrik Bonn, celebrating Mary Shelley, her ground-breaking work, and female authorship. Thank you everyone for a sold-out show, and we would love to see you again (or for the first time) on Saturday for some Frankenstein!
In the past year, three students have gained agency representation through the Novel Writing Workshop at the University of Bonn. With one or two networking events per semester, three students have convinced the agents Birgit Arteaga (Berlin) and Paula Peretti (Cologne) of their projects. We congratulate Nina Rheinheimer and Maria Keim (Agentur Peretti) as well as Philipp Börner (Literaturagentur Arteaga) and wish them all the best for the brilliant future ahead of them!
Christine Lehnen will take part in the Freshman Welcome of the University of Bonn. As part of a panel, she will discuss the possibilities open to students of the humanities and how it is always worth while to look right and left during your studies. Doors open at 4.30 PM, Lecture Hall I in the Main Building.
