Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Bertolt Brecht: It's this disgusting passivity... You people don't realize that it's not enough in the theatre to interpret the world anymore. You have to change it!
Odon von Horvath: I really think you underestimate the people's intelligence. They don't want blue-prints, they don't want instructions... They've been told everyday what to do; they don't want to go to the theatre and be told what to do all over again: they want to be shown who they are!
