Siberia and Other Plays
Mitterer's plays confront human suffering and oppression with an honesty and directness that is often painful for theater audiences. Siberia is a metaphor for survival under the most adverse conditions. This moving monologue represents one old man's struggle for dignity in a retirement home. Visiting Hours is a collection of one-act plays, showing various "inmates" and their tenuous connections to the world outside. There's No Finer Country documents the betrayal of a local Jewish citizen to the Nazis. Stigma is a historical drama of faith and superstition, of exorcism and torture, of humanity and unspeakable cruelty. This collection, the first in English translation, offers a spirited sampling of Mitterer's most representative works from 1982 to the present.
