The old Everyman fable comes from the north, where it was first written more than 500 years ago. The beautiful coulisse of the Storage City in the Hamburger free harbor offers an appropriate stage for the old and always renewed play on having and being, of the pursuit of assets and responsibility, of death and the devil, and of the last journey. Hardly any other theater production of the previous years has evoked such a positive resonance as the “Hamburger Everyman”. With this “different take on the death of the rich man”, the Hamburger author Michael Batz has made the piece a fascinating event for thousands of visitors in the past years. Told in a new and lively way, the piece serves as a serious comedy from a traditionally rich background on unusual and compelling levels.

Directly on the canal in the “heart of businessman city”, the piece offers a suspenseful free light theater with many jokes, irony and satire, a grim parable full of new takes on contemporary allusions.

In ievery season, this Hamburg classic is becoming sold out earlier and earlier, developing its own tradition while always keeping up-to-date.

The city development project of the harbor city is itself being confronted with the question of what should be put on the market from societal life, a matter which has partly been discussed for a while.

In such a confrontation between art and reality, this highly suspenseful and preserved-for-the-stage piece presents more than mere moral dividends or festival ritual.
