We are CDE, the German Society for Contemporary Theatre and Drama in English.

We promote and conduct research and teaching in the area of recent and contemporary theatre and drama in English in our publications and our annual conference, which unites contemporary playwrights, actors, directors, drama critics, academics in the field of theatre and drama, and teachers of theatre and drama in secondary schools.

In these aims, we cooperate with theatres, cultural institutes, schools, and other institutions as well as with foreign institutions and societies.
