Don Juan Comes Back From The War, By Ödön von Horváth, Translated by Christopher Hampton, Directed by Jure Gantar

What happens when mythic figures of the past are plunged into a modern world? The legend of Don Juan, the incurable yet charming womanizer, has been told and retold, but rarely in as radical a manner as in Ödön von Horváth's 1936 play. Positioned in the economic and moral crisis of Europe after the Great War, Don Juan is a broken man, a traumatized soldier in search of true love rather than passing pleasure. Though his world is populated exclusively by women, his goal remains elusive.
