International Theatre to close in a month
After more than 30 years of bringing English language theatre audiences to the capital Vienna's International Theatre is to have its final curtain at the end of next month (June).
The building in Vienna's Alsergrund will close and the manager Marilyn Wallace is reportedly due to go into retirement, according to state broadcaster the ORF.
Marilyn will be taking part in a performance of one of the theatre's favourite productions "I look back without anger" as a farewell to audiences.
In total the theatre managed to bring more than 100 different works onto the stage specifically targeting teachers and school groups.
The theatre on the Porzellangasse was opened on 14 December 1980.
Up until the end of June the theatre will be performing "Relatively Speaking" by Alan Ayckbourn and "Mark Twain’s America" by Samuel L.Clemens, and starring Herbert Moulton and Jack Babb gespielt. After that the theatre will close.
The theatre will then be returned to the property owner.
