Über diesen Titel


Drama / 9 m., 6 f. / Var. sets. In rural Russia in the mid nineteenth century, a brilliant, anarchic young medical student arrives at the provincial family villa of his best friend, Arkady, for the summer vacation. He wants to despise the family for their imperturbable complacency and bourgeois effeteness, but he is tormented by conflicting emotions. His desperate action has tragic consequences. "The evening leaves you pondering not just the play's political implications but the ageless tragedy of parent child relationship." London Guardian . "Drama at its most stimulating and eloquent... has the density, complexity and richness of a great 19th century novel without the usual creaking stage mechanism of dramatized fiction." N.Y. Daily News. "A fine, solid piece of drama not just about the divisions between the different generations but also about nihilism, revolution and the immutability of love." Time Out. FEE: $75 per performance.

About the Author:

Brian Friel was an Irish dramatist, short story writer, and founder of the Field Day Theatre Company. Considered one of the greatest English-language dramatists, the English-speaking world hailed him as an ""Irish Chekhov"" and ""the universally accented voice of Ireland"". His plays have been compared favorably to those of contemporaries such as Samuel Beckett, Arthur Miller, Harold Pinter and Tennessee Williams. Recognized for early works such as Philadelphia, Here I Come!, and Faith Healer, Friel had twenty-four plays published in a more than half-century spanning career and his plays were commonly featured on Broadway throughout this time. Friel co-founded Field Day Theatre Company and his play Translations was the company's first production. His play, Dancing at Lughnasa brought him Tony, Laurence Olivier, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Awards. It was also adapted into a film, starring Meryl Streep, directed by Pat O'Connor, and scripted by Frank McGuinness.
