    folk play by Ödön von Horváth
  • Overview
    Set against the sentimental backdrop of the Vienna Woods and to the distant tune of a Strauss waltz, a community steeped in bigotry concerns itself with love affairs, petty squabbles, jealousies and personal tragedy. Meanwhile, society at large, haunted by inflation, goes reeling towards Fascism.

    This energetic, hugely entertaining epic premiered in Berlin in 1931 as Nazi forces were gaining in strength.
