Ewald Palmetshofer

Ewald Palmetshofer is an Austrian playwright. In 2008 the theatre journal Theater Heute called Ewald Palmetshofer "the most promising writer of the year". After his German theatre success with the award-winning hamlet ist tot. keine schwerkraft Palmetshofer has provoked and challenged the German-speaking theatre audience.

Oslo International Theatre regards Palmetshofer as Austrian theatre's most exciting new voice right now, and the spring of2012 the company staged his hamlet is dead. no gravity as a staged reading at The Norwegian Theatre.

Palmetshofer's drama is performed in venues including Schauspielhaus Vienna, Schaubühne Berlin, Theater an der Ruhr Mühlheim and Schauspielhaus Dresden.
