Overview

Wars do not break out, they are not brokered


or declared as is always written.


They are brought about by those who desire them.'


In June 1914, Europe was enjoying unprecedented peace and prosperity. Little over a month later, the world was at war – and only a handful of people knew it was happening.


Inspired by the medieval mystery plays, Sommer 14: A Dance of Death is an epic telling from a German and European perspective of the world's descent into war. Employing the character of Death as a guide, the play uses the classic Danse


Macabre structure of a series of searing vignettes to illuminate the people and the events that led up to the outbreak of the First World War.


'The dead are amongst us, they are inside us. They demand of us that we answer for our crimes.'


Sommer 14: A Dance of Death is a hugely ambitious epic vision of the Great War from one of Europe's most acclaimed – and most controversial – dramatists, published to coincide with the UK premiere and the English world premiere at the Finborough Theatre in a brand-new translation by Gwynne Edwards.

Meet the Author

Born in 1931 in West Germany, Hochhuth became a playwright after working as an editor for a large German publishing house. Hochhuth’s provocative first drama, Der Stellvertreter. Ein Christliches Trauerspiel (The Deputy, a Christian tragedy), also known as The Representative (1963), accuses Pope Pius XII and the Roman Catholic clergy of tolerating Nazi crimes against the Jews. It received productions worldwide and caused great controversy, as well as recently being adapted for the film Amen. His second play, Soldiers (1967), initially banned in England, received its world premiere in Berlin in 1967. It has also received acclaimed productions from Toronto to Melbourne. Later works include Guerrillas (1970), The Midwife (1972), The Survivor (1981) and the film A Love in Germany (1984).

Gwynne is a specialist in Spanish theatre and cinema and, until recently, Professor of Spanish at the University of Aberystwyth, Wales. He has also
translated and adapted more than forty plays from Spanish, French and Italian, many of which have been staged at major theatres in Britain and the United States. He has published three collections of Lorca's plays with Methuen Drama, and also collections of seventeenth–century Spanish and contemporary Spanish–American plays, together with adaptations
from the correspondence and prose writings of Dylan Thomas. His books include Lorca: The Theatre Beneath the Sand, Lorca: Living in the Theatre, Dramatists in Perspective: Spanish Theatre in the Twentieth Century, The Discreet Art of Luis Buñuel and Almodóvar: Labyrinths of Passion.
