Presented by Sheringham High School and Sixth Form. Bertold Brecht was born in Augsburg in 1898 and died in Berlin in 1956. He grew to maturity as a playwright in the frenetic years of the twenties and early thirties with such plays as The Threepenny Opera and The Mother. He left Germany when Hitler came to power and during this period of exile the masterpieces The Life of Galileo, Mother Courage and The Caucasian Chalk Circle were written. On his return to Europe he founded famous The Berlin Ensemble producing his own plays. His style of didactic political drama and unique stagecraft theories are studied and practised by drama students all over the world.
