Synopsis


The Great War is over, and Don Juan returns to Berlin ready to take up his mantle again as the city's most notorious lothario.


But Berlin has changed and the city is crumbling, and as political and economic upheaval engulf the survivors, Don Juan begins to question his taste for debauchery.


Ödön von Horváth's work evokes the sense of displacement that followed the First World War on all sides; it is now brought to life in a striking new version by award-winning playwright Duncan Macmillan.
