A new translation of the scandalous Austrian play from 1903 unveils intimate conversations between people before and after they have sex. A prostitute meets a soldier on the street, the soldier seduces a housemaid and so on, until in the final scene a noble Count meets with the prostitute and everything goes full circle. The characters and relationships are startlingly contemporary and socio-critical, and just as real as they were 100 years ago. Confrontational, physical and funny, this play dissects the relentless mechanics of desire, gender roles and power imbalances that still exist today.
