Leonce & Lena by Georg Buchner, trans. Henry J. Schmidt

Evidence Room

“Playwright Georg Buchner, who died at age 23, was a world-class rabble-rouser. Ostensibly a frothy fable, Leonce and Lena, Buchner’s only comedy, is actually a proletarian diatribe about wealth and corruption, as biting as his darkly dystopian masterwork WoyzeckDirector Bart DeLorenzo and company punch up Buchner’s political bitterness in their inventive new adaptation at the Evidence Room, yet wisely keep the essential silliness of the play intact.” – F. Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times
