Visiting Theater Director Helps Students with German Play


Students from Classical and Modern Languages with support from the Theater Department presented “The Tutor,” an adaptation of an 18th-century play by the 20th-century playwright, Bertholt Brecht. After a week of rehearsals and study of Brecht’s work in its historical context, students presented the play to a full house in the Black Box Theater. Jürgen Küttner, a renowned author, actor and theater director from Berlin, visited the Truman campus and worked with students in German in preparation for the performance. Jack Davis, associate professor of German, organized the visit in conjunction with a course on German theater taught by Ernst Hintz, professor of German.
