about this item

Four innovative plays by Polish-Jewish playwright Amelia Hertz, whose work is based on bizarre and macabre episodes from history and legend. Hertz creates a tightly controlled theatre of crueltyset in decadent periods of ancient historythat confronts extreme situations and poses "no exit" ethical and existential dilemmas. The plays included here deal with fin-de-siècle subjects rife with perverse sexuality and violence.
