Being Brahms

Anton does his best but it’s a tough world out there - what with the Nazis, internment, a loveless marriage and a son he can’t communicate with.

Being Brahms is a much better option, a world of soothing lullabies and the lovely Clara Schumann to drool over, a world where everything seems so much clearer.

Award winning playwright Gail Louw blends a universal, heartfelt story about fathers and sons with the wondrous music of Johannes Brahms in this new one-man show performed by Paul Humpoletz.

Paul Humpoletz’s television and film appearances are numerous and recently he appeared in Have Your Circumstances Changed? for Artangel, directed by Lu Kemp. He has just finished filming in Prague for a new TV series called Genius about Einstein.
