dear audience, dear friends,

We are pleased to welcome you to the very last edition of THESPIS, the unique international festival for one-person plays. Yes, it's true: after 25 years and over a dozen festivals, it's time to bid farewell to this oft-quoted theater event in Kiel and think back with a laughing and a crying eye to a quarter of a century of incredibly rich artistic and interpersonal encounters. We gratefully remember all of our colleagues and guests who left us during this time and become sentimental when leafing through our program booklets. At the same time we look forward to seeing many old friends again and are curious about the artists, who are visiting us for the first time. 15 performances await you in the main program (coincidentally - one for each festival edition), together with a supporting program in which we celebrate and say goodbye to THESPIS. We hope that you will find your way to us one last time and we would like to thank you for your loyalty, your curiosity and your support in bright and dark times. Let’s wipe the tears away and raise the curtain for the last THESPIS festival!
