Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A play of extravagant romance and combustible desire, FORCE OF NATURE brings together the "perfect couple"—Edward and Charlotte—with two persons from their past: a beautiful young woman and an older man, Edward's best friend. Beneath the placid exteriors of their lives, a storm is awakening—a rush of dangerous passions which shall alter their lives forever. Freely adapted from Goethe's Elective Affinities, FORCE OF NATURE is a lush, eloquent drama about the consequences of desire and the power of destiny.
"FORCE OF NATURE, the clever new play by the remarkably prolific Steven Dietz, is one of those savvy period adaptations that provides an erudite evening of old-fashioned theater, while simultaneously offering its audience a decent helping of contemporary relevance. This smart new take on Goethe's Elective Affinities should have a bright future across the country." —Variety. "Dietz's retelling [of Goethe's story] is nimble and theatrically fluent…a taut, thematically-honed exploration of the order of marriage versus the disorder of passions." —National Post (Canada).
