Interior Set

This play, famous in Europe, is now available in the U.S. for the first time! As described by the N. Y. Times, THE BEAVER COAT "is a subversive thieves' comedy in which social justice can only be achieved through duplicity and a reversal of the order of the classes. The heartbeat of the play, Frau Wolf, is a scheming washerwoman who will not allow herself to be downtrodden. . . . she is moving up in the world, stealing, lying and cheating her way to respectiability . . . Hauptmann's comments on bureaucratic ineptitude are as apt today as they were in 1893, when the play was written .. . (and) Frau Wolf is a feminist before her time."

" .. an excellent new translation ... it is wonderfully playable without sacrificing authenticity and should have a long life on the stage."-Soho Weekly News

"A hilarious comedy of the purest knavery, full of peasant guile and cunning, and replete with bureaucratic idiocy .. . full of character, joy and nonsense." - N.Y. Post
