Barbara Frey, artistic director of the Ruhrtriennale 2021–2023, has been awarded the Nestroy Prize 2021 for her direction of »Automatenbüfett« at the Burgtheater Wien! Michael Maertens was named best actor for his role of Herr Adam in the same production. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them both on this achievement!

Since 2000, the Nestroy Prize has been awarded for outstanding performances at the Viennese and other Austrian theatres.
