Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The six plays are from the decade 1985 to 1995, which pivoted on German reunification. They range in content from outspoken sociopolitical attacks to minutely detailed investigations of intimate relationships, and in form from realistic linear narrative to a highly abstract construct of language and imagery. Three from each side of the former wall, all the playwrights are solidly established in the repertoire of German theater. Paper edition (unseen), $16.95. Annotation c.
