August Wilhelm Iffland

Author Code: GAWI

Born: Apr. 19, 1759 - Hanover, Germany

Died: Sep. 22, 1814 - Berlin, Germany

Preferring a career in acting to his father's desire for him to become a clergyman, Iffland left home and went to Gotha where he trained under the well-known German actor K. Ekhof. In 1779, he began to perform at the Mannheim National Theatre and soon became the principal actor. In 1796, he moved to Berlin to become director of the Royal Theatre. In addition to his acting, which Schiller thought was among the best, Iffland was also an accomplished playwright, producing over 60 plays during his career. His works include The Hunters (1785), Dramatic Works (1798), Bachelors (1799), The Lawyers (1799) and The Theory of Acting (1815 Posthumous).
