Description

Full Length Play

Set in turn of the century Viennese society, the play opened in London to great critical acclaim.
"A theatrical feast: a play that combines detailed psychology with a portrait of a society.... What the play shows us is couples indulging in a polite sexual excuse me behind which lurks panic, death and an insane preoccupation with honour.... What is fascinating is that the action is conducted against a background of tennis parties, trips to the Dolomites, charade like affairs and summerhouse banter against Art Deco panels. Everything suggests a world of golden leisure and civilized deceit. But what Schnitzler shows us is the corrosive effect of habitual lying on this Smiles of a Summer Night' atmosphere and the destructive impact of the hero's contaminated sense of honour. I think it's a marvelous play because it pinpoints decadence with wit and irony."" - Guardian
