A slightly ironical description of the colony of German artists in Los Angeles, who had to leave their country during the Nazi-regime. A young playwriter (von Horvath) joins them and finds out, that there are gaps between the artistical attitudes and the real live behavior of authors like Thomas or Heinrich Mann, Lion Feuchtwanger or Bertold Brecht.

Odon von Horvath, the central character in this play, was a real person, but none of the events of the play ever happened to him. He was killed in a bizarre accident (a tree fell on him) in 1938, and never went to America. See more
