Ödön von Horváth: Two Plays

DON JUAN COMES BACK FROM THE WAR (DON JUAN KOMMT AUS DEM KRIEG): The anti-hero of the title returns from the front in a fervour of despair. The girl he is searching for has died and the romantic ideal he is trying to construct is opposed by endless recriminations from the succession of women he encounters. Don Juan Comes Back from the War was first performed in this translation at the National Theatre in 1978.

FIGARO GETS DIVORCED(FIGARO LÄSST SICH SCHEIGEN): An aristocratic couple and their two servants are on the run from a revolution. Their fortunes rise and fall against a background of social and political upheaval. Figaro Gets Divorced was premiered in this translation at the Gate Theatre in 1990.
