Synopsis

Plays 2 - Italian Night & Tales from the Vienna Woods

Plays 2 - Italian Night & Tales from the Vienna Woods $14.99

Odon von Horvath trans Christopher Hampton

Published by Oberon

Written in 1930s Europe, these plays describe the decay of a society haunted by inflation and succumbing to a rising tide of fascism

In Hampton's translation of Tales from the Vienna Woods (staged at the RNT in 1977) von Horváth portrays, with compassion and impartiality, the interplay between individual selfishness and the pressures of a society in crisis

Italian Night, in this new translation by Meredith Oakes, has a group of friends deciding to hold a republican 'Italian Night', only to discover the fascists have chosen the same day for a German Day parade
