Bertolt Brecht

Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) was a German poet, playwright, and theater director. An influential theater practitioner of the 20th century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble the post-war theater company operated by Brecht and his wife and long-time collaborator, the actress Helene Weigel with its internationally acclaimed productions.
