Aurora Theatre Company founding Artistic Director Barbara Oliver returns for the company's 20th anniversary season to direct Arthur Schnitzler's first theatrical work for the stage, Anatol
. This world premiere translation, commissioned by Aurora from renowned Schnitzler expert Margret Schaefer, chronicles the affairs of a gadabout 19th century Viennese playboy. Living solely in pursuit of his own pleasure, Anatol is quite skilled in seduction, adultery, infidelity and betrayal, and encounters a series of mistresses in his search for the perfect faithful lover. In the end, it's always the women who have the upper hand. Schnitzler had such an intuitive grasp of human behavior that his contemporary, Sigmund Freud, was an admirer.
