This study deals with the establishment of Max Reinhardt's school in Berlin, the training there up to World War II, the programme of study during the German Democratic Republic, and the setting up of the Hochschule fur Schauspielkunst "Ernst Busch". It offers a detailed account of the training methods which existed shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, examining the shift in emphasis from a socialist Realistic school of acting, as one of the state institutes of the GDR, to a more eclectic, broad-based approach. The training programme showed the influence of Reinhardt's theories of acting as well as those of Stanislavski and Brecht. In addition, several of the school's main teachers and leaders throughout its history are profiled, and their various views included.
