Summary (From the publisher):

The five plays collected in this volume provide a representative sampling of the Austrian contemporary Volksstuck (folk play). The Volksstuck which has its origins in the eighteenth century has become a favorite genre of modern Austrian playwrights because of its tradition of treating basic social problems critically and realistically.

The timeless universal drives of greed, power, and inhumanity remain the dominant themes of the modern Volksstuck as they were of the older version. These selections are available in English for the first time.

  • The Ogre by Veza Canetti
