Has anyone seen this play before? From what  i have gathered it could be a fun night out. I've been told that the play is only ninety five minutes long(no interval). Will anyone from here be going to the Belgrade to see it?

Er - "fun night out" - NO! The piece is extremely disturbing and nihilistic. That's not to say it isn't good. I thought it was a fascinating production - and was astounded at the issues and writting given the date of authorship (just post WW1). But then I guess not too many German/Austrian authors were feeling too chipper at that time. It's fascinating, good theatre and well worth seeing (the house was virtually empty when I saw it - I really fear for the Belgrade at this rate) but it is disturbing and depressing too.
