My GER 420 (German Drama Production) class is putting on a play this semester! It’s Biedermann und die Brandstifter by Max Frisch. The play is a great allegorical tale alluding to the rise of the Nazis and the way in which the German population chose to overlook the uprising. I get to play a pretty small part (definitely my choosing), a member of the Chor.
In addition to performing Biedermann, we’re also putting on a version of Der deutsche Mittagstisch by Thomas Bernhard with an all-new translation by several members of the class.
