The investigation : a play by Peter Weiss( Book )

94 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A shattering drama about the holocaust by the author of Marat/Sade. The stark stage contains nothing more than rows of wooden chairs and small tables for the judge, defense attorney and prosecuting attorney. The top rows are filled by those accused in the Frankfurt trial of the atrocities of Auschwitz. The house lights are kept on which, together with seating the attorneys and the judge in the audience, contributes to the sense of spectator participation. This play is based on the actual testimony and its impact is devastating! Bare stage w/props

Marat/Sade ; The investigation ; and the shadow of the body of the coachman by Peter Weiss( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Weiss (1916-1982) was virtually unknown in the mid-1960s when Peter Brook made Marat/Sade into a film. The weaving of time, space, plot, real-and-imagined characters, sexual liberation, and surrealist imagery made Marat/Sade a sensation. Little did audiences realize that this counterculture classic was written by a German Jew. At that time, Weiss was also at work on a play about Auschwitz: The Investigation. These two dramas are in this volume along with The Shadow of the Body of the Coachman. All are cogently introduced and edited by Robert Cohen
