Peter Merck, 1939 – 2022

Peter was an honorary member of the “friends” and the longest-serving volunteer at the Keller Theatre. He joined the American theatre in Giessen in 1964, participating over the years as an actor, director, “dramaturg”, reviewer and regular audience member. Peter knew well the Miller Hall, Rödgener Straße 64 and the Kleine Bühne – almost the whole history of the Keller.

We will remember with gratitude his great contribution to our English-language theatre.
