About the Author

Elfriede Jelinek, born in 1946, is one of the most important contemporary authors writing in German and has won numerous literary prizes, including the Mülheim Dramatist Prize (on four occasions) and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2004.
Jelinek’s theatre plays have addressed topics such as gender and class inequality, racism and xenophobia, right wing populism and the repression of a national socialist legacy in Austria, the war in Iraq and the global financial crisis. Lacking a plot and psychological characters, the texts work with language in a playful and musical fashion that brings out surprising truths. Widely performed, her plays’ challenging and experimental nature has inspired directors to create their own postdramatic interpretations.
