Today Arthur Schnitzler is often associated with sex and death -- Eyes Wide Shut
was adapted from one of his stories. But Schnitzler was also extraordinarily perceptive. Sigmund Freud himself confessed that Schnitzler "learned through intuition ... everything that I have had to unearth by laborious work." Night Games
, a new theatrical adaptation of Schnitzler's novella, showcases the writer's understanding not only of lust, but also of character and human frailty. In this steamy thriller, a young army officer agrees to help a friend in need. Short of cash, he finds his salvation at the card table, where he goes on a life-changing hot streak before his luck (and his life) take a dramatic turn. The acclaimed Marvell Rep presents the world premiere of Night Games
, translated, adapted and directed by the company's artistic director, Lenny Leibowitz.
