Ruth Oppenheim occupied the venue with her core company and staged Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author in April 1955. The company of actors was led by Berdine Grünewald. Oppenheim’s company also staged Albert Camus’ Caligula with Stanley Coghan; Christopher Isherwood’s I Am A Camera with Tessa Laubscher; a season of Grand Guignol and a stage version of André Gide’s novella, The Immoralist starring Charles Stodel, Stanley Coghan and Berdine Grünewald.
