A Department of Theater MainStage production
by Ödön von Horváth, in collaboration with Lukas Kristl
adapted by Peter Hackett
from a translation by Péter Fábri

A young woman struggles against cynicism and despair as she makes her way through a world wracked by dehumanizing poverty, institutional oppression, and bureaucratic indifference. Originally written during the Great Depression as a surreal and subversive commentary on the rising tide of European fascism, this new radio play adaptation reframes the story amidst the American backdrop of the 1932 Bonus Army marches on Washington and the violence that ensued.

Peter Hackett director
Jane Shaw sound designer and additional music
Lexi Warden '21 assistant director
Naomi Lam '21 stage manager
