Felix Mitterer - Siberia and Other Plays
"Mitterer's plays confront human suffering and oppression with an honesty and directness that is often painful for theater audiences. Siberia is a metaphor for survival under the most adverse conditions. This moving monologue represents one old man's struggle for dignity in a retirement home. Visiting Hours is a collection of one-act plays, showing various ""inmates"" and their tenuous connections to the world outside. There's No Finer Country documents the betrayal of a local Jewish citizen to the Nazis. Stigma is a historical drama of faith and superstition, of exorcism and torture, of humanity and unspeakable cruelty. This collection, the first in English translation, offers a spirited sampling of Mitterer's most representative works from 1982 to the present.
The Austrian playwright Felix Mitterer, born in 1948 in the Tyrol, is one of today's leading contemporary European dramatists."
