Translated by David Tushingham

Roland Schimmelpfennig Plays One $36.35 ex GST
$39.99 inc GST

Roland Schimmelpfennig is the most performed contemporary German playwright. This collection demonstrates the breadth and formal innovation of his writing.  This collection features:

The Animal Kingdom, depicts the unremitting battle for human survival in a merciless environment: the theatre.

Peggy Pickit Sees the Face of God has been likened to a post-colonial Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Here two doctors who have returned from Africa reveal the true cost of their failure to combat a terrible and frightening disease.

Idomeneusis a narrative play written for a large chorus which re-tells the classical Idomeneus myth in contemporary terms; a fractured, mythic tidal wave, brought to life with astounding theatricality by an ensemble of storytellers.

A small narrative piece, The Four Points of the Compassis is an urban fable of crossed destinies and uncanny coincidences and a compelling contemporary tale of lust for life and the fragility of existence.

Cast : 2F, 4M; 7F, 7M; 2F, 2M; 2F, 2M
