Conversation at Night With a Despised Character
Conversation at Night With a Despised Character
By Friedrich Durrenmatt.

Cast: 2m. A window pane breaks sharply on the darkened stage, and a man who has been sitting quietly in his living room at midnight says to an invisible intruder in a calm, firm voice, "Please come in." For this man has long awaited the visitor, knowing he would come sooner or later but not knowing in what disguise he would appear. The intruder presents himself as the secret executioner for the ruler of their totalitarian state. But it is Death itself that speaks. The macabre theme has overtones of such perceptiveness and even humor that it can stand as one of Durrenmatt's most interesting achievements. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
