In 1983 Alexander Wewerka founded his own publishing company specialising in theatre and film. Their program features practical workbooks as well as handbooks for acting, drama, auditions, screen writing and film editing. Additionally, the publishing program includes autobiographies and biographies of theatre and film makers, interviews and discussion volumes, plays and theatre programs as well as theatre documentaries for the Volksbühne Berlin, once situated in the GDR and called Germany’s most exciting stage. Also part of Alexander’s portfolio are fictional series of crime novels (since 2002 they publish the “Ross-Thomas-Edition”). All of their works are published not only as hardcovers but also ebooks since 2011.
