Written between 1898 and 1904, Rainer Maria Rilke's The White Princess is a brooding symbolist drama that has rarely been staged. Quiet Theater now offers a darkly comic exploration of the great poet's last play, in which his lifelong obsessions with life and death are transformed into a poignant parable of our war-ridden time. Set on the grounds of an estate by the sea, an isolated princess tries to juggle her conflicting responsibilities--for herself and for her world--with the help of her naïve sister and a faithful servant. Just as their dream-filled musings seem to indicate a certain destiny, a messenger arrives?
