Just a few more days to go until our final two shows! What a journey this has been! etc started back in 2020 and it took 4 years to get us to this point. We couldn't have done it without the help of many people. I want to give special thanks to James Bunyon. You are the best partner, colleague, friend, crazy person that anyone could ask for. Let's have a blast on Thursday and Friday and take the audience with us!

It's that time again! etc - english theater cologne will be back on stage next week, Sept. 8 & 9 at HORIZONT THEATER in BAKERSFIELD MIST by Stephen Sachs. For those that missed our Premier in June, this is your chance to see it! Theatergemeinde Koeln gave us a great review on their Instagram page, but here are a few excerpts (English translation):

“What starts out like a pleasant comedy, then takes serious, profound turns, and the ending in particular is thought-provoking.”

“Two worlds meet that could not be more different. Thus, very funny conflicts arise, which at the same time hold up a mirror to how much one is shaped by one's own prejudices.”

"Bakersfield Mist" by Stephen Sachs is clever and entertaining. Renish and her antagonist James Bunyon are a well-oiled team. They understand each other almost blindly. It can be seen and felt by both that the performance of this play is a matter of the heart.”

For tickets just call or email HORIZONT THEATER at [email protected] . We look forward to seeing you!

Thank you Theatergemeinde Koeln for a wonderful Premier write-up. June 13 & 14 was a great start for etc - english theater cologne’s first LIVE show, Bakersfield Mist by Stephen Sachs. More performances Sept 8 & 9, Oct 20 & 21 and Nov 16 & 17. www.etc-englishtheatercologne.com
TICKETS - https://www.horizont-theater.de/produktionen/bakersmist.html

For my English speaking friends, an English translation is below.

Have a great summer!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
For transparency purposes: I met the lead, Kathleen Renish, in person a year ago when we both attended the same play. Since then, we've been in touch and she invited me to the premiere of "Bakersfield Mist," ETC's first production.

I was very happy about that. Not only about the invitation, but also about the play. What starts out like a pleasant comedy keeps taking serious, profound turns, and the ending in particular is thought-provoking.

Maude has found areally ugly painting in a junk store. After a little research, however, she is now convinced that it is an undiscovered painting by Jackson Po***ck. Art expert Lionel Percy has come from New York to visit her in the trailer park in California to confirm the authenticity of the painting.
Disagreements and friction arise between the two. One can clearly feel that Lionel is full of prejudice against Maude. Never in a million years would a real Po***ck stray into a trailer park. Maude, on the other hand, is frustrated by this pretentious snoot. Two worlds meet that could not be more different. Thus, very funny conflicts arise, which at the same time hold up a mirror to how much one is shaped by one's own prejudices.

"Bakersfield Mist" by Stephen Sachs is clever and entertaining. Kathleen Renish and her antagonist, James Bunyon are a well-oiled team. They understand each other almost blindly. It can be seen and felt by both that the performance of this play is a matter of the heart. He British, she US-American, both speak a very understandable English. The contrast between the two accents underlines the different characters of the two protagonists: He very posh, stuck up and condescending, she loud, swearing and stubborn.

It was a pleasure to watch the two of them. RJ
Note: The performance is entirely in English.

Further performances will take place in September, October and November.

TODAY IS OUR PREMIER! Also tomorrow. June 14!

BAKERSFIELD MIST by Stephen Sachs, 20:00 Uhr / 8 pm at Horizont Theater, Thürmchenswall 25 | 50668 Köln (near Ebertplatz). https://www.horizont-theater.de/produktionen/bakersmist.html

We had a great General Probe / Dress Rehearsal and are very grateful to Horizont Theater for the opportunity to do our Premier show on their stage. Horizont Theater Köln has been providing a wonderful mixture of children's theater, shows for young adults and a breadth of evening shows. If you've never been there before, maybe seeing our show will be your first chance and hopefully not your last. COVID and post COVID has been a very difficult time for theater ensembles (we founded our ensemble at the beginning of the pandemic supported by a cultural grant) and small theaters like Horizont.

The theater is located in a cellar so it is cooler than most. We'd love to see many friendly faces tonight or tomorrow, but if you are not able to, then we hope to see you at one of the shows in Sept., Oct. or Nov.

Let us make you laugh and give you some food for thought... Hope to see you!

It's been a long three years... but we are excited to finally be able to share with you the name of our first live production: BAKERSFIELD MIST by Stephen Sachs. The Premier at Horizont Theater Koeln, is June 13 & 14, 2023 8:00 p.m.!

We are very grateful to NRW and the German government that helped etc get our start back in 2020 to create our website and to film samples of our work. Then in 2021, the second grant helped us with our first educational project for young people called, The English Writing Challenge. You can see the result of that under Education on our website. The third grant in 2022 helped with pre-production costs for Bakersfield Mist.

Thank you NRW Soforthilfe, Corona Soforthilfe des Bundes and the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of Norh Rhine-Westfalia. Without your financial support, we wouldn't be here today.

Story:
Maude Gutman, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park in the California desert, believes the painting she bought at a thrift store for three dollars as a gag, is really an undiscovered Jackson Po***ck painting worth millions.

Is it the find of the century or a clever forgery? When eminent New York art historian and expert Lionel Percy arrives at Maude's trailer to evaluate the painting, the two embark on a fiery debate over class, truth, and what we personally perceive as valuable. Inspired by true events, Bakersfield Mist is a lively and entertaining comedy/drama about the meaning of art and what or who is authentic.

CAST:
Kathleen Renish as "Maude Gutman"
James Bunyon as "Lionel Percy"

Directed by Rebecca Gadsby

We hope to see lots of you at our first two performance dates in June! More in the fall!

Our final post before the holidays... What a year it has been! We are still very grateful to everyone who has supported us and cheered us on since our founding at the end of 2020. We knew this would be a challenge, founding a theater company during a pandemic. 2022 presented us with some challenges that we just didn't expect and we had no control over. We are optimistic for the new year and look forward to seeing you all in 2023 in the audience of our show!!! 🎄💐🍾💖

Just a short update to what we've been doing, and it's been a LOT!

The past month or so, we've had various Skype meetings with our director, Beck Gadsby which was the start of our rehearsal process. All the while we've been busy with pre-production, rehearsal studio, set design, getting everything we need for the stage, props, costumes, talking with the publisher, etc.

On Sept 17 we rented a van (thanks to ENTERPRISE in Koeln Muehlheim) and moved everything into the rehearsal studio (thanks to Michl Neupert from Ein Euro Ensemble) and we had our first intense week of rehearsals. On the final day, we had our Fight Director, Phil Bonney, to help us choreograph an important scene. It was a blast!

We are methodically moving forward and still have much to do, but are definitely on our way, and we continue to be grateful for each person, company and organization that has come forward to help us to get our first production on stage. One big shout out is to NRW "auf geht's" the grant that I received this year which has financed our pre-production.

Thanks to EVERYONE! 🙏🙏🙏
James Bunyon, it's been a pleasure to go on this journey with you and I'm looking forward to our first bow together on stage! ❤️❤️

Today we finally had our first rehearsal WITH most of our set in the rehearsal room. It was a challenging day (the van almost didn't fit through the entrance to the yard where the room was...🥵🥵🥵) but we're a great team! James Bunyon behind the wheel and me guiding him along inch, by inch. This company was founded three years ago in the middle of the pandemic and it's been a long way to where we are today. We are very grateful to everyone who has helped and supported us along the way. There is still much work ahead, but we made a very important step today. Thanks James. I'm looking forward to what's ahead!

Just a quick summer message to let you know that we are in pre-production for our first LIVE show which hopefully will premiere in late fall 2022. Skype is still our best friend for meetings during this ongoing COVID time. James is almost over his bout with the big C and I'm very glad we could have our meeting today. Hopefully after the summer break we will be able to report more - the name of the play, the theater, dates, etc.

We still are looking for a Theater P/R person to help us on an hourly basis with some things for our website and for the first production. If anyone has any recommendations, please let us know.

Take care, stay safe and healthy and have a lovely summer!
