ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It examines the multi-dimensional play "Die Neuberin," which was created for Agnes Straub by Eberhard Keindorff and Gunther Weisenborn during the Third Reich period. The play was written during the time when the German government integrated its power and generated arts bureaucracies to oversee the production of plays. It is centered on an 18th century reformer and a critique of the 20th century. There is unexpected sexuality in the play, without the nagging morality of poetic justice.
