The Wolfgang Borchert Theatre at Münster's harbour is one of the oldest professional private theatres in Germany. It stages around 280 performances of more than 20 plays a year.
The ensemble and repertory theatre builds on a broad repertoire: modern playwrights, socially critical comedies, but also classics such as Brecht or Schiller. A highlight are the large summer theatre open-air events at exposed locations, such as on a water stage in the harbour basin.
With 146 seats, barrier-free access, new technology and a spacious foyer with gastronomy, the WBT is a theatre with modern standards.
Claus Wernert founded the Wolfgang Borchert Theatre in 1956 as a "theatre in a small room" with 40 seats. Two years later it was continued as a "room theatre" in the railway station with already about 100 seats. Intended as an answer to outdated structures at city and state theatres, outdated content and dusty aesthetics, it quickly developed into an avant-garde stage. To this day, the theatre is dedicated to modern theatrical forms and plays with socially critical content.
The theatre received its current name for its 25th anniversary in the 1982/83 season. At the height of the peace movement, it was renamed after the writer Wolfgang Borchert - one of the best-known authors of Trümmerliteratur.
