Strauss - Three Plays

The Park; Seven Doors; Time and the Room


Botho Strauss rose to fame in the 1970s through his work with Peter Stein at Berlin's Schaubuehne theatre and has since garnered numerous international awards and a reputation as Germany's leading contemporary playwright. These three plays, first published in German in the 1980s, show Strauss developing an enigmatic, unsettling and uniquely theatrical style. Set in Hamburg, The Park is Strauss's take on A Midsummer Night's Dream. Seven Doors brings together a jilted husband, a wedding without guests and two monks with an intimate knowledge of hell. In Time and the Room, the room contrives to be the play's main character. Jeremy Sams's translations include Les Parents Terribles, Indiscretions, The Miser and Maria Stuart, Figaro's Wedding, The Magic Flute, Wagner's Ring Cycle and Becket.
