(From the publisher):
This second volume of plays in English translation offers further evidence of the powerful artistry of Felix Mitterer, who is considered one of today's leading European dramatists. The themes are varied, but all are highly relevant to understanding contemporary life. A mythological Wild Woman
, a variation of the "eternal feminine," changes the lives of five woodcutters, exposing their basic character for better and mostly for worse. Home
reiterates the dictum "you can't go home again," especially where prejudice, brutality, and hatred reside. Children of the Devil
, a historical drama based on actual court records, depicts institutional superstition and cruelty as perpetrated upon the most vulnerable members of society, its children. One Everyman
is a modern version of the traditional medieval morality play, complete with a Devil from Wall Street, while Abraham
, drawing a Biblical analogy, concerns the scourge of AIDS and its effect upon the love between a father and his son.
