Set in turn-of-the-century Vienna, Otho Eskin's new drama zooms in on six historic figures destined to change the world. Art, music, science and politics are thriving in 1910, and daily life seems to be overflowing with frivolity and joy. But, festering beneath this façade, the city is sickened by moral corruption and ravaged by a growing hatred of the Jews. Against this backdrop, Gustav and Alma Mahler, Joseph Stalin, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Sigmund Freud meet. Mahler, the great composer and conductor, falls in love with the talented and fiery Alma Schindler. Stalin comes across a dangerous young man over a game of chess. Wittgenstein, destined to become a dominant force in world philosophy, runs into a mysterious young misfit with unpleasant consequences. And Freud faces what he has always denied -- the essential evil nature of man.
