Sommer 14: A Dance of Death free pdf Wars do not break out, they are not brokeredor 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 OCo 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 DanseMacabre 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 OCo and most controversial OCo 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."

About Professor Rolf Hochhuth

Born in West Germany in 1931, Rolf Hochhuth's provocative first drama, "Der Stellvertreter. Ein christliches Trauerspiel" ("The Deputy, a Christian tragedy," also known as "The Representative"), 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." It was produced at the Finborough Theatre in 2006. His second play, "Soldiers," initially banned in England, received its world premiere in Berlin in 1967, and received its first UK revival at the Finborough Theatre in 2004. Later works include "Guerrillas, The Midwife, The Survivor" and the film "A Love in Germany." Gwynne Edwards has prepared a new translation of the play, from a literal translation by Jennifer Bakst. Gwynne Edwards is a specialist in Spanish theatre and cinema and, until recently, Professor of Spanish at the University of Aberystwyth, Wales.
