Summary (From the publisher):

The five plays emphasize the isolation and despair in human relationships. Commander Carrigan focuses on the American involvement in Vietnam in the early 1960s. Comrade Briggemann compares five lives shortly after the construction of the Berlin Wall and thirty years later. Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a central-European version of "Frankie and Johnny," featuring a waitress who embarks on a life of passion, deceit, and murder. The Lake of Illusions reflects the lives of five women who struggle to attain success in their careers and happiness in their personal lives. Grillparzer, or The Three Sisters, exposes the competition between three sisters, each secretly hoping to marry the famous Austrian writer.
