Abstract
 
Description
The following statement describes the Samuel French Acting Edition of the English translation by Eric Bentley. Arthur Schnitzler's popular roundelay of love in old Vienna is told in ten interlocking scenes: two characters appear in each scene then one of them leaves into the next to afford a link. The soldier of the first scene leaves his "lady of the evening" to appear in the next scene with a parlor maid. The maid then departs to be with her wealthy employer. He, in turn, bumps the maid in order to receive his mistress, a certain married lady. The next scene is between the married lady and her husband, who then meets a girl of the streets at a private cafe. This girl goes on to meet her poet lover; the poet lover meets up with an actress; the actress has a rendezvous with the count, and finally the count and the "lady of the evening" spiral back to the beginning. Clever, yes? This amusing "tour de force" for five males and five females has entranced audiences throughout the world and has even served as the basis for the critically acclaimed musical HELLO AGAIN by Michael John LaChuisa. - from Amzon
