Bertolt Brecht, German director, playwright, theatre practitioner and poet (February 10, 1898 - August 14, 1956) was born Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht in Augsburg, Germany, and came of age during Germany's Weimar Republic. He had his first successes as a playwright in Munich and moved to Berlin in 1924, where he wrote The Threepenny Opera with Kurt Weill and began a lifelong collaboration with the composer Hanns Eisler. Immersed in Marxist thought during this period, he wrote didactic Lehrstucke and became a leading theoretician of epic theatre (which he later preferred to call "dialectical theatre") and the so-called V-effect. During the Nazi period he lived in exile, first in Scandinavia, and during World War II in the United States, where he was surveilled by the FBI and subpoenaed by the House Un-American Activities Committee. Returning to East Berlin after the war, he established the theatre company Berliner Ensemble with his wife and long-time collaborator, actress Helene Weigel. Bertolt Brecht died in East Berlin, East Germany of a heart attack at the age of 58. He is buried in the Dorotheenstadt Cemetery on Chausseestrasse in the Mitte neighbourhood of Berlin, overlooked by the residence he shared with Helene Weigel.
