Lesung Norbert Kentrup

The Sweet Taste of Freedom


  • Sunday, June 27, 2021, 18:00h –


Norbert Kentrup is a Shakespeare veteran from Neuss: actor, co-founder and former member of the bremer shakespeare company, director and "Shylock" on the stage of Shakespeare’s Globe in London, but above all initiator of the transfer of the Globe Neuss from Westphalia to the Rhineland. Without Norbert Kentrup (and many others) there would be no Globe in Neuss, let alone a Shakespeare Festival. All of this - and infinitely more - was documented by Norbert Kentrup in his autobiography “Der Süße Geschmack von Freiheit” ("The Sweet Taste of Freedom"). He will present excerpts from it to the esteemed audience on this afternoon in the open air at the Globe.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes, no intermission
