The Tin Drum
For five performances only, The Coronet Theatre is delighted to present the Berliner Ensemble’s production of The Tin Drum by Nobel-Prize winning novelist Günter Grass. Directed and adapted for the stage by their Artistic Director Oliver Reese, this is the Ensemble’s first visit to the UK since 2006. Grass’ world-famous story is told in a solo performance by actor Nico Holonics. Oskar is barely born when he recognises the world to be a universal disaster – and rejects it entirely. The world he is tossed into is experiencing the dawn of the National Socialist regime, with scant opportunities for a growing boy to thrive. Only when his mother promises to give him a tin drum does an acceptable prospect for survival unfold: the life of a drummer - and an observer. The Berliner Ensemble is one of the most renowned and long-standing theatres in Germany. Named after Bertolt Brecht’s world-famous company, it is part of theatre history.
