In 2020, I received a grant the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westfalia and the German government and was able to found etc-english theater cologne with my British colleague, James Bunyon. etc is a professional theater company offering American and British theater, projects, education. Oct. - Dec. 2020 we were busy Skyping with possible partners to help us get started like web designers, logo designers, film production companies, etc. By January we were ready to film "genre trailers" showing genres of shows we'd like to do after the COVID situation improves but due to all the lock downs, that was delayed until April 2021. At the end of April we filmed two different genre trailers, Old Time Radio Show / Comedy and the other, Classical / Drama / Fantasy. We started uploading the trailers at the end of June early July to our etc Facebook Page and our etc Instagram . We launched our etc website in December 2021.
We recently completed our first educational project, the English Writing Challenge, and are making plans for our first LIVE production which we hope to bring to a theater in Koeln or Bonn in 2022 depending on the COVID situation and available dates at possible venues.
THEATRE: WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT
BACK ON STAGE IN APRIL!
I'm going to be back on stage in Bonn, at the Euro Theater Central, April 13, 2019, 20:00 Uhr, doing WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT (in English) by Nassim Soleimanpour.
No rehearsals. No director. No set. A different performer reads the script cold for the first time at each performance.
As a unique theatre experience, WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour has been played worldwide, translated in 25 languages and creates a fascinating evening about freedom, manipulation and conformity.
This is not only going to be a unique experience for me but for the audience as well. I'm really looking forward to it!

Once upon a time there was a little girl from a very big, very strange country.
She grew up in a very, very strange family and when she was older, she crossed a big (not quite so strange) ocean and ended up in a very, very, very strange country named...
But hold on a sec, this isn't a fairy tale! And the truth is by far more crazy...
This is the unbelievable story of Kathleen Renish who left her whacky, orthodox Catholic family in Pennsylvania, only to crash land with a musical company in Germany right when the Berlin Wall came down!
Get the story why Kathleen decided never to leave Germany again - despite her own culture shocks like the German T.V. police, housecleaning craze and third world washing machines.
That is: learn everything and anything about the power of love - and how the Gemericans put it.
Enjoy a funny, warm-hearted evening full of cultural misunderstandings, genuine mishaps, linguistic mishaps -
and after all, with the wonderful singing Ms. Renish.

General Anzeiger Bonn - September 17 performance at the Euro Theater Central Bonn:
"..."Kölsch beherrscht die Wahlkölnerin neben Hochdeutsch übrigens fließend. Das steife britische Queens-Englisch ist nicht so ihr Ding. Dann doch lieber des solide-herzhafte US-Ostküsten-Ton." ...
"Warum sie trotz mangelnder öffentlicher Toiletten und Kaninchenstall-Wohnungen mit teuren Küchen und vorsintflutlichen Waschmaschinen in Deutschland hängen blieb. Klar: Es war die Liebe...."
"...Besides "high German", she also speaks the Cologne dialect, Koelsch. Stiff British English is not her thing but instead the solid, hearty U.S. east coast English.
With non-existent public toilets, and rabbit cage sized apartments with expensive kitchens and antediluvian washing machines, she is still "stuck" in Germany. Naturally: It's because of love..."
Comments from the September 17, 2016 show at the Euro Theater Central Bonn:

"...It was great! Thank you!..."
