Background: KAMMER. A short while ago the Royal Shakespeare company had an enermous success here in Berlin with King Lear. After this it will certainly not be easy for us in London. Luckily we are playing, not Shakespeare, but Goethe and Max Frisch. I can say we are all proud and happy to take part in these performances in their celebrations of Shakespeare's anniversary. This will be my first visit to England and I hope to see again an old friend of mine, Gerald Owen, from a soldier at Hanover in 49th Army Service corps, my native town - he was stationed there and I was Owne's German worker in this unit. Gerry Owen was well ahead of his sergeant major, Mr. Macmillan and Mr Adenauer for even at that time he was thinking in terms of the European Economic cooperation. And as a consequence of his thinking there was more food for my family and for myself. Dear Gerry, I hope you are watching this, I have lost your address and have lost track of you. I think it's high time I gave you a big re-union dinner after the performance at the Aldwych theatre, after all those many years ago. So until then auf weidersein.
