Author: Matthias Biskupek
Production: theater-spiel-laden


A love letter boy takes you into the days of Friedrich Schiller and talks about two hundred years of Schiller reception.


„Friedrich Schiller had affairs in Rudolstadt all the time he stayed here. And my great-great-great-grandfather as well as his aunts served like a mobile phone today. He was a rascal, the educated and later professor and court counsellor Fritz. Oh, I could tell you stories..., however, I’m discreet.


The service of a love letter boy has a long tradition. His ancestors are well-known in Rudolstadt and personally known by many residents. Please, follow him on his tour through the old town of Rudolstadt – but please, keep all the secret information about the residents of this town for yourself.
