Translated by John Willett
Written between 1939 and 1942, these are among the most concise, witty, and lighthearted of all Brecht's theoretical discussions of theatre. In Brecht's words, they constitute a "four-sided conversation about a new way of making theatre" and provide the blueprint for Brecht's radical aesthetic of the 1930s and 40s.

Written between 1939 and 1942, these are among the most concise, witty, and lighthearted of all Brecht's theoretical discussions of theatre. In Brecht's words, they constitute a "four-sided conversation about a new way of making theatre" and provide the blueprint for Brecht's radical aesthetic of the 1930s and 40s.

Here, Actor, Actress, and Dramaturg (or literary adviser) argue with the Brechtian Philosopher, who wants to exploit their talent for his own purposes. The result is a lively debate about the place of art in society.

The text is translated by John Willett, joint editor of Brecht's collected plays in English, and includes Brecht's own notes as well as a commentary.
