The cabaret "Die Schmiere" was founded in 1950 by Rudolf Rolfs and is one of the oldest private theaters in Frankfurt am Main.



The theater presented itself as "The worst theater in the world"; the name "Schmiere" is also a derogatory term for bad theater. Until 1990, Rolfs led the theater and wrote the programs. Supported by his long-time partner Reno Nonsens, he also performed as the main actor. In 1990, the two bid farewell to the stage with the program "Rolfs and Nonsens clear the camp". Since then, Die Schmiere has been run by Rolfs' daughter Effi B. Rolfs, Klaus Teßnow (until his death in March 2011), and Matthias Stich. The "satirical theater" performs on its own stage in the basement of the Frankfurt Carmelite monastery and organizes guest tours.
